    Vodafone to receive EU warning over $22 billion Liberty deal: sources

    Vodafone will receive a warning from EU regulators about possible anti-competitive effects from its $22 billion deal to buy Liberty Global's German and eastern European assets, two people familiar with the matter said on Wednesday. The warning, via a statement of objections setting out the European Commission's concerns, is expected to be conveyed to the companies shortly, the sources said, ahead of a June 3 deadline for the EU executive's regulatory approval. The world's second-largest mobile operator and U.S. cable pioneer John Malone's Liberty announced the deal in May last year in a move that would help Vodafone to compete with rival Deutsche Telekom in its home market.

    New entrant makes early running in German 5G auction

    MAINZ/FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Germany's auction of spectrum for 5G mobile networks drew brisk initial bidding on Tuesday with prospective new entrant 1&1 Drillisch submitting bold offers for the frequencies it covets. Drillisch, run by maverick tycoon Ralph Dommermuth, is vying to become a fourth operator in Europe's largest economy - a move that could benefit consumers but pressure the margins of the three existing players. Drillisch, majority owned by United Internet , put down a marker in the first round by staking more than 20 million euros apiece for 10 of the 41 blocks of spectrum on offer.

    Vodafone Invests in Fund Making Money Off Its Own Late Payments

    The fund is full of invoices from many of Vodafone’s 15,000 vendors of anything from antenna systems to furniture, according to three people with knowledge of the investment, who declined to be identified because the data are private. Vodafone makes its partners wait 48 days for their money, versus a 36-day global average, according to consultancy PricewaterhouseCoopers. “They are behaving a bit like a hedge fund when they are a telecoms company,” said Stephen Baseby, who recently retired as policy and technical director at the Association of Corporate Treasurers in London after more than 40 years in the field.

    German 5G auction to go ahead after court throws out challenges

    Germany's auction of frequencies for next-generation 5G networks will begin as planned on March 19, the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) said on Friday, after a court threw out challenges brought by the country's three operators. Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone and Telefonica Deutschland had filed motions seeking to put the auction on hold, complaining that the terms under which spectrum was being sold off were onerous. "The date stands," a BNetzA spokeswoman said, confirming the auction would start at 10 am (0900 GMT) next Tuesday in Mainz.

    Germany toughens security criteria for all telecoms equipment vendors

    Germany set tougher criteria on Thursday for vendors supplying telecoms network equipment, stopping short of singling out China's Huawei Technologies for special treatment and instead saying the same rules should apply to all vendors. The announcement follows months of debate over whether to side with the United States and some allies in barring Huawei, the global market leader, from 5G networks due to concerns over the firm's ties to the Chinese government. In the end, the ground rules released by the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) stated that critical equipment should only be used after scrutiny and certification overseen by Germany's BSI federal cybersecurity watchdog.

    Vodafone says complete UK ban on Huawei would cost it millions of pounds

    Vodafone said any move by Britain to bar equipment made by China's Huawei from all parts of new 5G networks would cost it hundreds of millions of pounds and "very significantly" slow down the deployment of the new technology. The United States has asked allies not to use Huawei's technology because it could be a vehicle for Chinese spy operations, an accusation denied by the company. Vodafone said last month it had paused the use of Huawei components in its core networks in Europe until governments had assessed the risks.
