The sale of Tiscali appears to be moving forward with the confirmation of a date by which offers must have been put into the pot. The date is 5th May and it is thought that some seven companies are interesting in bidding for the group.
One name that keeps appearing in relation to the sale is Carphone Warehouse who already have various interests across Europe and the US. If the people who run TalkTalk and AOL Broadband were to buy the Tiscali broadband operation it would make them the largest broadband provider in the UK. TalkTalk already is the dominant player in the fully unbundled market, but it does lack the TV string to its broadband products that the Tiscali TV service may bring.
