TDC A/S (Tele-Denmark Communications) is the former telecom monopoly in Denmark. It is now privatized. Thus, it is the biggest company in all aspects of telecommunication in Denmark with landline, mobile, Internet, VHF maritime borderline-radio etc.

By the end of 2004, the TDC Group had more than 13.4m customers in Europe: 3.5m landline customers, 7.1m mobile customers, 1.8m Internet customers, and 1.0m cable television customers.


Over the past decade, TDC developed from a traditional and mainly Danish provider of landline and mobile telephony services into a Danish-based European provider of communications solutions. Deregulation of the Danish telecommunications market in 1996 created a highly competitive market. In 2004, the Danish telecommunications market was fully liberalized and highly competitive. TDC was partly privatized in 1994 and fully privatized in 1998, and at year-end 2004 TDC's shares were held mainly by institutions and retail investors in Denmark, Great Britain and the United States.

In 2006, a group of private equitys firm under the banner Nordic Telephone Company (NTC), offered to buy TDC for a price of about 11 billion USD. Among the group were companies such as Blackstone, Permira, Apax and KKR. The company failed to buy more than 90% of the shares and was unable to remove the company from the Copenhagen Stock Exchange. Also in 2006, TDC pulled out of the UK mobile telephony market, with the closure of their joint venture with Easy Group, Easy Mobile.

In 2007, the Swiss-subsidiary of German supermarket chain, Aldi, announced that they would launch a pre-paid mobile service called "Salut!-mobile". This service would be operated as an MVNO running on TDC's Swiss subsidiary, Sunrise. [1]
