Vodafone signs Deutsche deal

Vodafone has signed a deal with Deutsche Telekom, the German company, which will allow it to sell high-speed internet and TV services in the country. The deal dampened a suggestion that the UK firm will renew attempts to buy Kabel Deutschland, the cable company that Vodafone considered a bid of up to £9bn for earlier this year. Talks were believed to have been put on hold, but the latest deal seems to quell any hope of a deal.
