Re: stay strong
At some point, this has to be about more than consumers. There has to be a case for a sustainable business as well. This site is ostensibly focused on CSP issues. From a CSP perspective, it's hard to justify investing in building and running a network if the best-case scenario is 20% market share. MVNOs are a different story.

Re: stay strong
But nonetheless, it can't be all bad if the new business "threatens to increase the competitive and pricing pressure on the existing players," and thus help out the customers and provide incentive for better service and speeds?

Re: stay strong
Yep. With a combined 7.7m mobile subs they'll now have 6% market share in Germany. The key thing for United Internet is that it gives them access to 4G through Drillisch's deal with O2 Germany (which was a condition of the E+ merger). Without 4G (which no one was obliged to make available to United Internet) their mobile business was moribund.

"Strong fourth player" -- that's telecom's equivalent to the runner-up for Miss Congeniality.
