The board of directors of Song Networks, the Nordic broadband services network with a link to Tallinn, has recommended accepting a higher cash bid for its shares from Tele2, which has been bidding against Denmark's TDC to take over the company.
If that happens, will Tele2 in the Baltics also consider jumping into the already hot corporate date services market, where Lattelekom, Latvenergo, Latvian Railways, and Baltcom Fiber (owned by a Latvian telecoms and cable TV entrepreneur and a Dutch investor) are active to a greater or lesser extent? I don't know what Linx is up to, but they also have ambitions (and, I believe, fiber) in the region.
An interesting thought. We shall see what happens. However, these musings are sobered by remarks recently heard by this blogger from Latvenergo and Lattelekom that the haven't been building up much of a corporate network client base quite yet. One reason is - there simply aren't that many regional large companies to begin with, and most of the multinationals are hooked up with the global operators.
