Fun times in the chairs?
Yes but the ikea furniture is only available on 1st of April! Do the chairs move around or are they 'static'! Aldi are selling the ones that when you touch them they turn into m and m's! ( if that is the correct advert!) Ok I'll take my punishment, report me and ban me- I deserve it! Vod not doing too bad at the moment though. GL all holders, still have me some Verizon shares might keep them for a while yet. Strong hold on both? Not a well anyway.

FT on German Telecom Market
Telefónica Deutschland: call waiting: Observers of Europe’s telecoms sector might feel the same, waiting hopefully for progress that may not appear. The consolidation that many hoped would be a catalyst has not yet produced results. Consider Germany, which has an extremely competitive telecoms market. Quarterly mobile revenues have declined year on year since 2012, according to Citigroup. Last year’s purchase of E-Plus (fourth in market share) by Telefonica’s O2 (third) should help. Following approval by the European Commission the new company Telefónica Deutschland promised better penetration of its 4G service as well as €800 million of cost cuts by 2019. Tuesday’s fourth-quarter results revealed the task ahead. Profits have yet to appear in abundance. The company just beat consensus expectations for the quarter with €354 million of earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation. Full year ebitda margins were low by European standards, at less than 20%, even after adjusting for restructuring charges. Even with some growth and this year’s portion of savings (€250 million), margins should reach no higher than the low 20s. As for its data offering, a quarter of customers have taken up large plans (over one gigabyte per month). That compares well with the first quarter when only a tenth had done so, suggesting network improvement or price cuts. The company also added more than 300,000 mobile subscribers over the past quarter, better than second place Vodafone and similar to incumbent Deutsche Telekom. But poor margins hint at price pressure.
