In a CNBC interview from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Fries said this meant a fixed broadband fibre-based network alongside a mobile network, adding that the operator already had a mobile network in nine markets.
“Every company of scale should have a mobile solution with seamless connectivity,” he said.
Asked about UK prime minister Theresa May’s speech on the Brexit process this week, Fries said her comments had been well-received.
“We’re investing 3 billion pounds right now, extending networks, building out fibre-based networks across the UK. We’re not going to stop. But if other companies who are investing 3 billion pounds invest 2 billion pounds there’s a trickle down effect. Hopefully [the prime minister] can create clarity and confidence.”
