EXECUTIVE VIEW-TeliaSonera-Telenor unsuccessful to remonstrate -Danish watchdog


OSLO, Sept 11 Soren Bo Rasmussen, Head of
Division during Denmark’s Competition and Consumer Authority, gave
the following comments to Reuters after TeliaSonera
and Telenor deserted skeleton for a partnership of their
Danish operations:

ON COMPETITION:

“It is good for a foe and for a consumers that
the partnership has been dropped”.

ON THE REMEDIAL OFFERS MADE BY THE COMPANIES TO WIN
APPROVAL:

“The offers were not clever adequate to in any approach moderate the
rather large concerns both a elect and we had.”

ON TDC’S VIEW THAT DENMARK NEEDS CONSOLIDATION:

“I would have pronounced a same thing if we had been a big
player, in any market: ‘If we are fewer players we can make more
money’.

“Historically monopolies or duopolies have not been a best
at ensuring investments, creation and development. Competition
has but doubt been best during that.

“It’s a good day for competition. Consumers will get cheaper
telephony than they would have if a partnership had been completed.

“We have had really good team-work with a EU elect in
this case.”
