O2 rumoured to be favourite for BT takeover
BT are leaning towards a takeover of O2 over EE, according to a number of reports following a board meeting at the media giant yesterday.
Last week Stephane Richard the chief executive of EE’s part owners Orange said that more would be revealed by BT a few days before Christmas.
A Mobile.co.uk survey that has been running since news of the potential takeover broke has consistently shown O2 to be slight favourites over EE.
Last week there were suggestions that EE was being eyed by private equity firms as well as BT.
