Everything Everywhere unveils contrary figures

The newly combined Orange and T-Mobile has announced its first quarterly results, with revenues and customers up or down depending how you count them. Revenue is down 4.8 per cent to £1.72bn, but that's the government's fault, and the drop in subscribers only exists if you insist on comparing to earlier this year rather than …

T-Orange: And then there were four

T-Mobile and Orange reckon their merger will be good for shareholders, good for the industry and even good for the environment. But it is possible that customers might not be so enamoured. The new venture, which won't have a name until 2012, will be the largest network operator in the UK, with 37 per cent of the market. It …
