FAVERGES, France (Reuters) - France’s economy minister on Monday urged Bouygues Telecom to explore tie-up with other operators after it lost out in a battle for control of SFR to rival operator Numericable.

“Consolidation remains our objective,” Arnaud Montebourg told reporters. “Bouygues can perfectly well imagine solutions with other operators.”
