Brussels has given Vodafone the green light for its $22bn (18bn) takeover of parts of Liberty Global's cable networks, clearing the way for the most valuable European telecoms merger in more than a decade.

It seems that Vodafone is buying Liberty Globals networks in Germany and eastern europe. I wonder if this means anything for Virgin Media.

Vodafone seem to be very serious about the future of broadband networks. They seem to be involved in multiple technologies.

PS: The countries that networks will be taken over are; Czechia, Germany, Hungary, and Romania.

It feels like only yesterday LG brought VM, are they just a short term asset flipping company?

The deal excluded VM,  who incidentally were conducting a review into possibly opening up a wholesale arm to supply other SPs.
Liberty Global have disposed mostly of their Eastern Europe assets and now seem to be focusing more on the UK market.   Don't they also want to buy ITV?
