16:22 EDTDTEGY, ORANBT, EE CEOs say proposed merger will create 'continued investment' for U.K.
BT Group (BT) issued a press release saying that its proposed acquisition of EE -- a joint venture between Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY) and Orange (ORAN) -- will create a "true U.K. digital champion... who is both willing and able to invest in ultrafast broadband and 5G," according to BT CEO Gavin Patterson. EE CEO Olaf Swantee also added commentary on the deal, saying it "would result in continued investment" for Britain. Patterson remarked that "other companies operating in the U.K. would be able to benefit and compete through highly regulated, equal access to Openreach’s network, and wholesale access to the EE mobile network." Openreach is a division of BT. "The deal would provide customers with greater choice and value as the integrated company would be in a better position to offer bundled services," added Patterson.
