So, ATT are eyeing up parts of Telefonica – with Carlos Slim sniffing around European mobile operators, the game’s starting to change for European mobile operators.
What will the impact be on Ireland? Probably nothing directly, in the short term. The much-rumoured sale of O2 IE to Three probably won’t be impeded, on reflection, and surely Eircom wouldn’t make the mistake of selling their mobile operator a second time? Mind, there was a story a little while back about AT&T buying Vodafone… scurrilous, no doubt!
