Czech convergence

Here's some unwelcome news for Telefonica, which recently received EU approval for its acquisition of Cesky Telecom: T-Mobile is to attack the residential broadband market with a deployment of IP Wireless UMTS TDD gear, aiming for c.50% population coverage by this time next year. T-Mobile's Czech business has 4.4m subscribers, of whom 1.1m are contract, which is a nice captive audience to start off the marketing effort.
