Tiscali UK, a subsidiary of Italian giant Tiscali SpA, will be acquired by the Carphone Warehouse Group Plc UK following a decision by the European Commission that the merged entity will not significantly impede competition in the European Economic Area. Tiscali UK provides telecoms and internet services to both business and residential lines nation wide. Although the markets of Tiscali and the Carphone Warehouse overlap, there are a number of strong competitors on the UK market, including British Telecom and various cable-based providers.
