Belgacom SA (Euronext: BELG), Telenet , and
Tieto Corp. are carving their corporate pumpkins in today's frankly non-scary Euro telecom news bites.
To kick off, two from Belgium: Incumbent operator Belgacom is in confident mood following slightly better-than-expected third-quarter results, while rival Telenet saw its share price rise 6.2 percent on its third-quarter results, with packages of voice, data and TV helping its numbers too. (See Belgacom Reports Q3 and Telenet Reports 9M.)
Finnish IT services and integration expert Tieto Corp. has given its head of Telecom & Media, Willem Hendrickx, the additional role of head of Tieto International. The move comes as the integrator reports its third-quarter financials, which show net sales from its telecom-related operations remaining flat. (See Tieto Appoints, Reports Q3.)
Poland's government has been told by the European Commission that it must amend its legislation so it falls into line with EU telecom competition rules, reports IEWY News. The wrist-slap relates in particular to wholesale pricing.
