Italian telecommunications group Tiscali, which agreed on Friday to sell its British assets to Carphone Warehouse, said it would also raise new capital to reduce debt. A statement said that Tiscali, which is in financial difficulties, would sell its British interests to Carphone Warehouse in Britain for 236 million pounds (265 million euros, 355 million dollars). The money would be used to reduce debt of about 600 million euros. AFP PHOTO/Shaun Curry (Photo credit should read SHAUN CURRY/AFP/Getty Images)

CARPHONE Warehouse is to become the latest mobile operator to enter the Irish market.

The company has signed a deal with Three Ireland's owner Hutchison Whampoa and it will provide services using Three's mobile virtual network operator service.

The MVNO arises from Hutchison's recent €850m takeover of O2 Ireland.

It is understood the deal will be announced over the coming weeks.
