One way or another, Vodafone (VOD +0.2%) seems intent on growing its German wireline presence: a source tells Reuters the mobile giant is talking with Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY.PK) about a deal to offer German consumers a bundle of mobile, TV, and broadband services.

Some think the Kabel overtures were a negotiating tactic aimed at securing better terms from DT.
