FRANKFURT - Deutsche Telekom CEO Tim Hoettges said its T-Mobile US unit was ideally positioned for an independent future after the failure of merger talks with Sprint Corp , but left the door open to consolidation.

"It was right to make an attempt. But it is just as right for T-Mobile US to continue now along its own path," Hoettges told a conference call after Telekom announced stronger third-quarter core earnings and raised its full-year outlook.

Hoettges flew 50,000 km in seven days in a bid to save the deal to unite the third- and fourth-largest U.S. market players, only to call it off last weekend because, he later told staff, it would not have added value.
