Vodafone now claims to be Europe's leading converged operator

Vodafone has completed its take over of Liberty Global’s cable operations in Germany, Hungary, Romania and the Czech Republic, boosting its pay-TV business.

The two companies have slightly differed over the value of the deal, with Vodafone citing €18.4 billion, while Liberty Global focused on the deal’s enterprise value of approximately €19.0 billion.

Vodafone said the deal makes it “Europe’s leading converged operator, with 116.3 million mobile customers, 24.2 million broadband customers and 22.1 million TV customers across 13 European countries.”
