Tim Cowen, Partner at Preiskel & Co LLP, has been quoted by the Global Competition Review in its article on the recent BT/EE merger decision by the Competition and Markets Authority. He called the CMA’s approval of the merger without remedies a “brave decision”.
Tim went on to say:
“Given the ubiquity of the new entity, increasing capacity shortages in mobile, and increasing interest in quad play bundles, it will be interesting to see what response competitors can come up with,”
“The CMA finds that competitors have a range of counter strategies, and we are all looking forward to seeing what they will be.”
