Tiscali to buy Pipex?

Rumours are circulating in the Italian press that Tiscali are about to announce that they have bought Pipex. This actually makes to sense to me as Tiscali are probably the only company either brave or crazy enough to take on the integration of the diverse Pipex properties. Tiscali have also expressed an interest in the forthcoming Italian auction 3.5GHz WIMAX spectrum. They also have a medium sized B2B division into which the hosting business would fit quite nicely.

I have a funny feeling that despite huge odds against Tiscali might be the only large scale independent survivor of the Free Broadband Nuclear Bomb that Carphone dropped on the UK ISP market – the cockroach of the UK ISP industry.
