Re: Too oligopolistic
Hence the qualifying "just about every" mobile market. But the overall point is that mobile network operators need a certain level of business (market share) to run a profitable business. MVNOs are a different story.

Re: Too oligopolistic
@mendyk: absolutely correct. Coming within the TOP 3 is a good thing unless you have fixated on getting all of your consumers to rely on your networks, but you must have that kind of supportability on ur networks.

Re: Too oligopolistic
EU will have to take this deal positively, but it may believe the merger could impact competition.

All of these, currently the UK's smallest operator, has a history of disrupting the market with low prices, roaming offers and 4G at no extra cost. Should it become the largest operator, the need for such aggressive tactics would be less.

 @Mendyk: Not so in every mobile market. In India even number fours are doing quite OK in most circles.

Re: Too oligopolistic
While having more than three operators seems preferable for consumers, economically it simply doesn't pay to be Number 4. That's the case in just about every mobile market.

Too oligopolistic
Three operators are too few for the UK and Scotland market. It will not be in the interest of customers as the market will turn too oligopolistic. Why is it exiting the market?
