3, T-Mobile Talks

11:20 AM -- There's talk in the market that T-Mobile (UK) might buy Brit rival Three UK . (See T-Mobile to Bid for 3?)

But one analyst is dubious about the value of 3's customer base.

Buying 3 wouldn't deliver the sort of high-spend users the mobile operators are looking for, according to Ben Wood of CCS Insight . All anyone buying 3 would get is "a bunch of Vicky Pollards," he noted at an industry press conference this week.

We couldn't reach Vicky for comment, but we believe she would have said: "No but yeah but yeah but yeah no but yeah no but yeah."
