    British mobile operators EE and Virgin Media fined for overcharging

    Ofcom said that about 400,000 customers of BT Group's (BT.L) EE were wrongly charged exit penalties totalling up to 4.3 million pounds, while about 82,000 Virgin Media customers were overcharged to the tune of 2.8 million pounds. EE, Britain's biggest mobile operator, was fined 6.3 million pounds and Liberty Global-owned (LBTYA.O) cable company Virgin Media was fined 7 million pounds. Virgin Media said it would appeal, saying the ruling is "unjustified and disproportionate", while EE issued an apology and said it accepts Ofcom's findings.

    Liberty Global 'not desperate' to sell Swiss business - CFO

    Cable operator Liberty Global (LBTYA.O) is investing to strengthen its Swiss UPC video offering so it could stand alone if a strategic partner isn't found, CFO Charlie Bracken said on Thursday. It has sold its Austrian unit to Deutsche Telekom (DTEGn.DE), while the $21.8 billion (17.04 billion pounds) sale of its operations in Germany and Central Europe to Vodafone (VOD.L) is being reviewed by regulators. In Switzerland, there has been persistent speculation that UPC would merge with Sunrise Communications (SRCG.S), whose German anchor investor Freenet (FNTGn.DE) has said it is also open to offers to sell its stake.

    Deutsche Telekom welcomes German cartel office move on Vodafone-Liberty

    Deutsche Telekom (DTEGn.DE) CEO Tim Hoettges welcomed a request by Germany's cartel office to rule on Vodafone's (VOD.L) proposed takeover of Liberty Global's (LBTYA.O) German unit, and reiterated his opposition to the deal. "I expressly welcome this," Hoettges said of the request regarding the deal, which is currently before European Union regulators in Brussels, siding with other German critics of the combination. Hoettges said the $26 billion takeover by Telekom's U.S. unit T-Mobile (TMUS.O) of Sprint Corp (S.N) was on track and he saw no reason to doubt that it would win regulatory approval, as expected, in the first half of 2019.
