What the TPG and Vodafone Merger Means for the Australian Telco Sector
This IDC Market Note discusses the planned merger between Australian telcos TPG and Vodafone and the union's potential industry impacts. The Australian Federal Court has approved a merger between TPG and Vodafone, overruling the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s (ACCC) prior decision to decline approval in 2019. The court ruled that the merger would not be likely to lessen competition. Barring an ACCC appeal, TPG and Vodafone will complete its merger in mid-2020.
