BRUSSELS: Vodafone secured on Thursday antitrust approval from the European Union for its US$22 billion bid to buy Liberty Global's cable networks in Germany and central Europe after offering concessions in May.

The European Commission said in a statement that the approval was "conditional on full compliance with a commitments package offered by Vodafone."

Vodafone, the world's No. 2 mobile operator, is looking to the deal to help it better compete with German market leader Deutsche Telekom, report agencies.
