Vodafone get prepared for Quad Play. Italy first.

  What’s going on with Tiscali?
According to several published reports out of the U.K. today, mobile carrier Vodafone is nearing a bid to acquire Italian broadband service provider Tiscali. Don’t forget, Vodafone also already owns Tele2 operations in Italy, and if it buys all of Tiscali, it could become a competitive wireline broadband powerhouse there.

  Tiscali has been trying to sell off some of its properties, including IPTV operations in Italy and in the U.K. market. From the other hand FastWeb reportedly had been considered a candidate to acquire the assets in the U.K., but FastWeb owner Swisscom denied that interest. What Swisscom had not decided yet was whether or not it to make a bid for Tiscali’s home market IPTV properties in Italy.
