Telecom Italia`s main shareholder Vivendi notes that the phone group`s chief executive seems to view separation of its fixed line network as not that easy, a Vivendi spokesman said on Tuesday.
Italian regulator AGCOM said over the weekend a proposal to legally separate the network drawn up by ex-chief executive Amos Genish, who was appointed when Vivendi controlled Telecom Italia`s (TIM) board, would not reduce its market sway.
U.S. activist fund Elliott, which seized control of TIM`s board last year in a battle with Vivendi, has pushed for the spin off of the network.
Elliott-backed Luigi Gubitosi took over as CEO in November.
