FRANKFURT, June 25 Telefonica Deutschland
, the German unit of Spain's Telefonica, said
it would grant network access to mobile phone company Drillisch
in a move to obtain approval for its planned takeover
of KPN's E-Plus unit.
Drillisch agreed to acquire "20 percent of the capacity of
all mobile networks that will be under the control of Telefonica
Deutschland following the consummation of the proposed
acquisition of E-Plus Group", Telefonica Deutschland said in a
statement on Wednesday.
Sources told Reuters last week that EU antitrust regulators
would approve Telefonica's 8.6 billion euro ($117 billion) bid
for E-Plus after promising to grant rivals access to its network
($1 = 0.7355 Euros)
