Danish telco TDC has declined to comment on a press report that it could be interested in snapping up Colt Telecom.

Swiss IT business magazine, IT Reseller reports that TDC is about to buy Colt.

A spokeswoman for TDC told The Register: "We have a policy not to comment on rumour or speculation, which this is."

A spokeswoman for Colt also declined to comment on "rumour and speculation".

Colt is a provider of business telecoms services in Europe operating in 13 countries.

TDC is a Danish telco that, most recently, is behind the launch of the UK's new discount mobile phone outfit easyMobile.

In September TDC - previously Tele Danmark - announced it was buying Swedish IP and business telecoms outfit Song for $552m. Song provides business with IP and data services and operates in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. ®
