Vodafone vs Telecom

Very disappointing to see that Vodafone has laucnhed legal proceedings against Telecom’s new mobile network, on the grounds of signal interference.

This is gut instinct, but I am suspicious that this is more about knocking Telecom’s marketing schedule off balance, than the only resort left to Vodafone. There may well be technical issues, but was litigation really necessary just 11 days from Telecom’s launch?

We’ll know more once documents are filed and made public. For now I am sceptical, and hope that it is not a sign of Vodafone behaving like an incumbent bully. As I said, there is not enough information public at this stage to know who is right or not.
