sbiddle:boby55: I don't think the Commerce Commission will like this if it goes ahead.
Why? I see very little reason for them to object. Neither is a majority player and even combined they still don't have the same market share as Telecom Retail.
As we enter the UFB world NZ's biggest telco in 10 years could very easily be a player that doesn't even yet exist on a drawing board.
I agree with you Steve.
If anything, this could be a very good move for all consumers given how it would empower Vodafone and can we really see Telecom not fighting back if Vodofone starts to get a jump?
I do agree with the Sky question. What could Vodafone do with the NZ Tbox platform and 4G?
I was having a look at one of Vodafone's DSL routers the other day and just wondering what all the USB sockets are for and noted that one of the lan points is clearly marketed "TV".
Give them a fibre network that can push more data around the country, a PVR they can connect to and a 4G network that can go head to head with what Chorus have currently.
As consumers, it strikes me we could be in for some exciting times. ...and that's what the ComCom is all about isn't it?!
