TpgNews

The ACCC considers “TPG is the best prospect Australia has for a new mobile network operator to enter the market, and this is likely the last chance we have for stronger competition in the supply of mobile services”.

The long shots may require further intervention by the ACCC to support its preferred outcome, with the risk being that it holds back valuable mobile network development to prop up an otherwise unworkable fourth network entrant.
