UK Mobile Phone Network Market Share - Nov 2015

  • The proposed merger between O2 and Three would create the largest mobile network operator in the UK.
  • Many have called for this merger to be blocked, including the CMA (The Competition and Markets Authority), as they believe that it would cause long term damage for UK consumers because there would only be three mobile networks in the UK as opposed to the current four.
  • The European Commission has until 19 May to make a decision on Three’s proposed £10.5bn takeover of O2.
