Ofcom chief outlines anxiety over 3 UK/O2 combination

first_img Tags Richard is the editor of Mobile World Live’s money channel and a contributor to the daily news service. He is an experienced technology and business journalist who previously worked as a freelancer for many publications over the last decade including… Read more Higher prices, network disruption and a threat to high street competition are the main concerns that Sharon White, chief executive of UK telecoms regulator Ofcom, expressed over the proposed merger of 3 UK and Telefonica O2.White (pictured) put these arguments to the European Commission which is reviewing the bid by 3 UK parent, CK Hutchison, for rival Telefonica O2.The commission was expected to publish its decision last week but its failure to do so indicates intense negotiations with interested parties.White writes in the Financial Times that the UK is “not a broken market”, where last year operators generated a massive £15 billion in revenue while in turn investing billions in 4G deployment and maintaining healthy margins in excess of 12 per cent. “Competition, not consolidation, has driven investment,” she concludes.White argues allowing 3 UK and O2 to combine would mean higher prices for consumers and business, since the former has traditionally behaved as the UK’s market disruptor.Ofcom analysed mobile pricing over recent years across 25 countries, said White. Its findings show that prices on average are between 10 per cent and 20 per cent lower in markets with four operators, including a disruptive player, than in those with only three operators.Her second concern is that the upheaval following any merger could harm service to end-users. White notes that the UK’s four operators currently have network sharing deals that cut across merger lines: one is between 3 UK and EE, while the second is O2 and Vodafone. Unravelling these deals is not in the best interests of customers, she suggests.Her third anxiety is the impact on high street competition where independent mobile phone retailers could be squeezed by the merger, with the result that prices go up, and tariff innovation goes down.White also says establishing a new operator to bring the number back up to four “might be one answer”. Margrethe Vestager, the European Commissioner for Competition, has favoured this approach in other markets.Last week a report said Xavier Niel, the billionaire behind French disruptor Iliad, met with Sharon White for a preliminary discussion about entering the UK market.However, White acknowledges even a deep-pocketed new entrant would need time, and considerable investment, to make an impact.The 3 UK/Telefonica O2 combination would control more than four in ten mobile connections in the UK, said White, a proportion borne out by GSMA Intelligence figures which show the combination would have a 42 per cent share of connections.

Clash curse continues for Jimmie Johnson

first_img“I had some contact from behind and we got turned into the outside wall,” Johnson said. “I haven’t had a chance to look at it and see what exactly happened, but the nose on our Chevy is pretty pointy. I was pushed by a Chevy, so I don’t know if that had something to do with it or not. I just need to get a good look at the replay.” RELATED: Full race results | Keselowski triumphs in The ClashDAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — At least Jimmie Johnson is getting closer. On Sunday at Daytona International Speedway, Johnson made it to the last lap of the Advance Auto Parts Clash. He just didn’t make it to the checkered flag. “Yeah, I guess we’re the first real crash at speed with that (configuration),” Johnson said. “I kind of forgot about it once we got going. I think the cars look cool, and they’re going faster, which is more fun from our standpoint. It makes handling a little more of a premium.” The wreck was another matter. Johnson was running fourth at the time of the crash, having just lost the third spot to Kurt Busch. With a strong car for the bulk of the race, the Hendrick Motorsports driver enjoyed driving the new Camaro ZL1 race car under new NASCAR rules that lowered the bodies of the cars as close as possible to the asphalt. After contact from Kyle Larson’s No. 42 Chevrolet turned Johnson’s No. 48 into the outside backstretch wall, the seven-time champion failed to finish the exhibition race — for the seventh straight year. Johnson was credited with completing 74 of 75 laps in a 12th-place finish, but a DNF (did not finish) is a DNF.last_img read more
