Alice in Deutschland
There's an old joke I heard many years ago from a World War II veteran which went something like: "How can you tell an Italian tank? It's the one with reverse lights." I keep running into speculation that Telecom Italia is looking to sell BBNed in the Netherlands, though I see no evidence of that, and when I see the deal with QSC to expand ADSL 2+ coverage to another 100 cities/towns in Germany on top of the AOL Germany acquisition, it appears to me that Telecom Italia's European DSL strategy is indeed a serious one. I wonder if something is on the cards in the UK market at some point, say Tiscali, for example?
