Fourth German network operator desirable - antitrust authority

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Germany’s antitrust regulator said on Friday it would be desirable for next year’s 5G mobile spectrum auction to open the way for a fourth operator to enter the market, rebutting arguments from established players that more competition would hit investment.

The Federal Cartel Office also called for service providers and virtual network operators to be entitled to gain access to networks on a fair and non-discriminatory basis.
