Competition, Ericsson, Kiwi's and Relish - Start your #telecom week with the news you need

Start your week in telecom with a round up of top stories from Total Telecom.

Kicking off the proceedings with Ericsson who last Tuesday predicted an LTE uptake gap between Europe, North America - the most read story of the week.

Second ranking was the proof that there is clearly news more important than football to come from Brazil as Telefonica and Telecom Italia clash over the Spanish incumbent reportedly still pushing for break-up of TIM Brasil.

Third on the hit list is the news that Vodafone New Zealand is to trial 4G small cells in July whilst fourth was the report that the GSMA chief, Anne Bouverot, sees more consolidation ahead but warns against strict remedies, whilst 3 cannot see cost benefit of cross-border M&A in Europe.

Finally relishing it's position in the top 5, UK Broadband claims consumers and SMEs are wasting £193 million per year on unwanted landline rental fees.
