Airdata files challenge to German telecoms merger

FRANKFURT, June 8 (Reuters) - German regional wireless operator Airdata has filed a challenge with the EU General Court to Telefonica Deutschland’s 8.6-billion-euro ($9.6 billion) acquisition of E-Plus.

The takeover, which was completed last year, reduced the number of national mobile carriers in Germany to three from four.

Airdata said late on Sunday the remedies enforced as a condition of the merger were insufficient and there was no fair competition in the German telecoms market.
