    EU clears Vodafone's $22 billion Liberty deal

    BRUSSELS/LONDON (Reuters) - Brussels gave its blessing to Vodafone's $22 billion purchase of Liberty Global's cable networks in Germany and central Europe, clearing the way for the British company to become Europe's largest mobile, broadband and TV provider. The deal is the standout move by Vodafone in its bid to become a provider of superfast broadband and pay-TV, rather than just a pure mobile provider. The strategy, launched by former CEO Vittorio Colao, is designed to increase customer spending and deepen user loyalty.

    Vodafone wins EU approval for Liberty Global deal

    Vodafone secured on Thursday antitrust approval from the European Union for its $22 billion bid to buy Liberty Global's cable networks in Germany and central Europe after offering concessions in May. Vodafone, the world's No. 2 mobile operator, is looking to the deal to help it better compete with German market leader Deutsche Telekom. It offered to strengthen rival Telefonica Deutschland by giving it access to its merged high-speed broadband network after the European Commission said the deal may reduce competition in Germany and the Czech Republic.

    Vodafone launches 5G in Germany, challenges D.Telekom on price

    Vodafone said on Tuesday it was launching 5G services in Germany, taking on Deutsche Telekom by offering cheaper deals and reaching more cities than the market leader that went live last week. Vodafone, which has already launched limited 5G services in its British home market, is switching on 5G antennae in 20 German towns and cities - a figure that Deutsche Telekom only expects to reach next year. "We are democratising 5G," Vodafone's Germany chief Hannes Ametsreiter said in a statement.

    State AGs fighting T-Mobile, Sprint merger say October trial may not be possible

    An attorney for the state attorneys general who filed a lawsuit in hopes of stopping T-Mobile's $26 billion merger with Sprint told the judge on Monday that an Oct. 7 trial may not be possible. In a letter to Judge Victor Marrero on Monday, attorney Glenn Pomerantz said that in exchange for the expedited October 7 trial date, the states had been promised materials on a settlement between the Justice Department and the companies by June 28. "Plaintiff states engaged in discussions yesterday with defendants regarding the appropriate trial date and pre-trial schedule and continue to confer with defendants," Pomerantz wrote in his letter.

    Deutsche Telekom loses lawsuit over all-you-can-watch video product

    Deutsche Telekom has lost a legal battle to continue offering an all-you-can-watch mobile video product after a court sided with the German regulator, saying it violated European rules on roaming and network neutrality. The appeals court in Muenster ruled that Deutsche Telekom's StreamOn product could no longer be offered in its current form, confirming a lower court decision in favour of restrictions imposed by the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) in December 2017.

    Dish’s Charlie Ergen Can Make or Break T-Moblie-Sprint Deal

    (Bloomberg Opinion) -- Players beware when Charlie Ergen holds all the cards. As T-Mobile US Inc. and Sprint Corp. continue to fight in Washington for their long-awaited merger, the wily satellite-TV billionaire is the companies’ best hope for getting the deal through. Unless, of course, he walks away.Ergen, the 66-year-old chairman and co-founder of Dish Network Corp., has a reputation for being an finicky dealmaker, with a tendency to upset merger processes and then drop out. The former professional poker player would say he’s simply not afraid to fold his cards – or alienate his peers. Case in point: A few years ago, Ergen offered to buy both Sprint and Clearwire, which then turned into a bidding war against Sprint for Clearwire, a collection of wireless-spectrum assets. Ergen ultimately gave up on both pursuits, but not before driving Sprint to pay about 70% more than it initially bid. Sprint got Ergened. Back to present day, and what do you know: Sprint’s fate pretty much rests in Ergen’s hands, as the U.S. Department of Justice determines whether to approve or reject its $59 billion takeover by T-Mobile. Makan Delrahim, the DOJ’s head of antitrust, reportedly wants the companies to divest assets that could be used to create a new viable fourth competitor as a check on the industry’s pricing power. So Ergen, who had been among the merger’s biggest opponents, is now ostensibly ready to be the deal’s savior by acquiring those assets and committing to morphing Dish into a full-fledged wireless carrier. Maybe. Over the years, Ergen had gamed the government auction system to scoop up Dish’s own valuable spectrum licenses, which have a use-it-or-lose-it provision with nearing deadlines. Taking on the scraps from the T-Mobile-Sprint deal could ease that pressure and help Ergen make good on his promises to build a network. But if unnamed sources cited by the New York Post are to be believed, Deutsche Telekom AG, T-Mobile’s parent, is insisting it will only hand those assets to Dish if it vows not to sell more than a 5% stake in itself to a third party such as Google or Amazon.com Inc., which are two giant would-be threats to the industry.It makes sense that T-Mobile’s side would be worried about Dish teaming up with one of those deeper-pocketed companies, as I wrote last month. And agreeing not to do so certainly isn’t in Dish’s best interests. Ergen has said he needs a partner for Dish’s network build-out, which presumably would entail some sort of shared ownership.For that reason, Ergen could just walk away once again. Without him, there may be no T-Mobile-Sprint merger. After all, 13 states and the District of Columbia have sued to block the deal in a trial that may start in October. No deal could also mean T-Mobile turns to Dish to fulfill its spectrum needs.“Charlie is very hard to understand and predict,” billionaire dealmaker John Malone, owner of the Liberty media assets and director emeritus at Charter Communications Inc., said of Ergen a few years ago. “He’s very creative, but he’s a poker player.” (Ironically, Fox Business Network reported that because some at T-Mobile and Sprint are skeptical of Ergen’s dealings with the DOJ, they’re “praying” Charter and Malone will bid for the divested assets.)John Legere, T-Mobile’s outspoken and genial CEO, has been an ideal pitchman for the deal, smoothly handling inquisitions by Congress over the past year and constantly using his highly followed social media channels to promote the merger. But his style may be no match for Ergen’s whimsy. At the end of Legere’s latest episode of “Slow Cooker Sunday” this week – where he demonstrated recipes for Cajun corn on the cob and lemon feta drumsticks – the magenta-apron-wearing executive took a moment to make a wish. I think I know what it was. This may be the week that finally yields a decision from the DOJ, and what that decision will be is still anyone’s guess. But what I can say for certain is something I’ve said many times before: Good luck betting against Charlie Ergen. To contact the author of this story: Tara Lachapelle at tlachapelle@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Beth Williams at bewilliams@bloomberg.netThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Tara Lachapelle is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering deals, Berkshire Hathaway Inc., media and telecommunications.

  • Germany Makes Push for Cloud Service Independent of U.S.

    Germany Makes Push for Cloud Service Independent of U.S.

    (Bloomberg) -- German Economics Minister Peter Altmaier plans to build up a German cloud service to allow European companies to store data independent of Asian or U.S. rivals such as Amazon.com Inc.“Germany has a right to technological sovereignty,” said Altmaier during a visit to San Francisco. “Data clouds should not only be set up in the U.S. or China, but also in Germany so that European companies, which want secure and reliable data storage, have this option.”Altmaier’s plans are a second attempt to build up an independent German cloud service. Deutsche Telekom AG has been marketing its own cloud as a secure alternative to U.S. platforms, but at the end of 2018 began offering access to Amazon’s data centers in a recognition of its longtime rival’s dominance in Europe.The minister said he’s seeking partners for his planned cloud alliance and is in talks with SAP SE, Deutsche Telekom and other companies. He expects a decision by the companies in the next months, he said.Geopolitical tensions and trade wars are making European politicians cautious about domestic champions ceding control of their data to technology suppliers from the U.S. or China, fearing that providers could deny access to critical information about customers or production, or serve as a venue for rogue agents.Under the Trump Administration’s Cloud Act (or the “Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data Act”) that was signed last year, all U.S. cloud providers can be ordered to provide local authorities data stored on their servers no matter where that data is physically stored. A similar concept has been enshrined in Chinese law since 2017, in which information of citizens must be stored in-country and accessible on demand to the authorities.Agnes Pannier-Runacher, France’s deputy economy minister, said in an interview with Bloomberg in June that European businesses relinquishing control of their data was “a systemic risk” to the competitiveness and sovereignty of an economy.Germany’s central bank has also recently warned the region’s banking sector that the move to shifting data on the cloud will make the industry harder to monitor.(Updated with additional context.)To contact the reporter on this story: Birgit Jennen in Berlin at bjennen1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Ben Sills at bsills@bloomberg.net, ;Giles Turner at gturner35@bloomberg.net, Andrew PollackFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Qualcomm, BMW Triumph in EU Fight Over Connected Car Rules

    (Bloomberg) -- Want the lowdown on European markets? In your inbox before the open, every day. Sign up here.Qualcomm Inc., BMW AG, and Deutsche Telekom AG clinched a victory Thursday after European Union member states scrapped new rules mandating WiFi technology as the basis for how future connected cars talk to each other.The ruling is victory for 5G technology as countries around the world prepare for the roll-out of ultra-fast 5G wireless networks, which will power everything from self-driving cars to smart factories.The legislation -- first proposed in March by the European Commission, the bloc’s executive -- aimed to govern how future connected and automated cars in Europe send information between vehicles and infrastructure, in order to communicate about dangerous situations, road works, traffic lights and more.The companies had been urging EU legislators to veto it out of concern it would force them to make additional investments to fit a soon-to-be outdated technology, saying WiFi offers poorer performance than cellular-based technology compatible with future 5G networks.“Member states sent today a strong signal to the commission that technology neutrality should prevail," said Maxime Flament, chief technology officer at the 5G Automotive Association, which includes Qualcomm and Daimler AG as members. "Only a level-playing field between existing technologies will allow safer, more efficient mobility on European roads."The decision by representatives of the EU’s member states, which still needs to be formally rubber-stamped by its ministers on Monday, forces the commission back to the drawing board to come up with a new proposal.In a statement, EU Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc said she takes "good note" of the decision, stressing the need for an EU-wide cooperative intelligent transport system."We cannot miss this opportunity and lose valuable time to make our roads safer," Bulc said. "We will therefore continue to work together with member states to address their concerns and find a suitable way forward."Volkswagen AG, General Motors Co., and Volvo Group have been proponents of the draft rules favoring WiFi systems, arguing that the industry needs clarity on what systems to use as soon as possible, and that it currently is the only proven technology.(Adds comments from 5GAA, European Commission.)To contact the reporter on this story: Natalia Drozdiak in Brussels at ndrozdiak1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Giles Turner at gturner35@bloomberg.net, Nate LanxonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    T-Mobile on Cusp of Justice Department Approval for Sprint

    (Bloomberg) -- T-Mobile U.S. Inc. is on the cusp of securing U.S. Justice Department approval for its $26.5 billion merger with Sprint Corp., after establishing the general outlines of asset sales to Dish Network Corp., according to people familiar with the matter.The Justice Department is hammering out final issues with T-Mobile on an agreement aimed at ensuring Dish can become a strong fourth competitor in the U.S. wireless market, said the people, who asked to not be identified because the matter isn’t public. While the sticking points aren’t insurmountable, the Justice Department has yet to bless the arrangement to allow Sprint’s acquisition to proceed.T-Mobile is trying to offer just enough concessions to gain approval but not so many that it creates a formidable rival while the Justice Department is aiming to maximize competition, the people said.Sprint and Dish shares both jumped on Bloomberg’s report. Sprint was up 1.7% to $7 at 12:35 p.m. in New York, while Dish climbed 2.3% to $40.07. T-Mobile climbed less than 1% to $75.94.T-Mobile and Sprint have agreed to sell to Dish some airwaves and Sprint’s pay-as-you-go brands, including Boost, Virgin Mobile and Sprint Prepaid, the people said. Dish would also get a six-to-seven-year wholesale agreement allowing it to sell T-Mobile wireless service under the Dish brand. The package would also include a three-year service agreement from T-Mobile to provide operational support as prepaid customers shift to Dish, according to one of the people.The companies are expected to hash out the unresolved issues around network sharing within a few days, setting them up for a possible decision from the Justice Department as early as next week, they said.CNBC first reported the details of the wholesale agreement as well as potential timing of the Justice Department’s decision.Representatives for T-Mobile, its parent company, Deutsche Telekom AG and the Justice Department declined to comment. A representative for Sprint didn’t have an immediate response to a request for comment.T-Mobile agreed to buy Sprint in April 2018, pitching the transaction as a way to advance the introduction of the next generation of wireless technology known as 5G, a priority of President Donald Trump.Regulatory ConcernsThe companies have already won the support of the Federal Communications Commission, in part by promising to deploy a 5G network that would cover 99% of the U.S. population within six years.They still have to win over Justice Department antitrust chief Makan Delrahim, who wants the No. 3 and No. 4 wireless carriers to shed enough assets to lay the groundwork for a new fourth competitor.Approval from the Justice Department could give the carriers a boost as they contend with a lawsuit filed by a group of state attorneys general who say the deal should be blocked because it will hinder competition and raise prices.Ergen’s AmbitionsThe concessions would be a boon for Charlie Ergen, the billionaire chairman of Dish. Long aware of the inevitable decline of satellite television, he has spent billions of dollars in government auctions to amass wireless airwaves.Gaining a wireless business and some airwaves would bring him closer to building a state-of-the-art network that can send video and other content without the need for cable or a satellite antenna.(Updates with trading in fourth paragraph.)\--With assistance from William Wilkes.To contact the reporters on this story: Nabila Ahmed in New York at nahmed54@bloomberg.net;David McLaughlin in Washington at dmclaughlin9@bloomberg.net;Scott Moritz in New York at smoritz6@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Nick Turner at nturner7@bloomberg.net, ;Liana Baker at lbaker75@bloomberg.net, Matthew Monks, Sara FordenFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Deutsche Telekom said it was continuing a review of its vendor strategy as it announced the limited launch of 5G services in its home market, where it has partnered with China's Huawei Technologies in trial projects. Asked whether it was taking any action in response to U.S. calls on its allies to exclude Huawei from their networks, executives said they were continuing an ongoing vendor review and were in close contact with regulators and the government. "The most important criterion is network security - and the most important statement to make here is that we should not depend on one vendor," Deutsche Telekom's technology chief Claudia Nemat told a briefing.
