Carphone still wants Tiscali?

March 30, 2009

UK mobile phone retailer and broadband provider Carphone Warehouse is considering a bid for the Tiscali's UK business, according to press reports. Carphone Warehouse's broadband division TalkTalk is hoping for a bargain after a deal to sell the ISP to BSkyB fell through at the last minute.

Tiscali’s UK business had 1.774 million customers in September, down from 1.838 million the previous quarter. The parent company was suspended from the Italian stock exchange earlier this month after it said that it could not meet debt covenenants.
