    India’s Billion-Dollar Shakedown

    Something about India’s telecom sector attracts its grasping state like a bee to honey. The most egregious recent example is the government’s attempt to profit off a possible merger between two of the biggest remaining telecom companies -- Vodafone India Ltd. and Idea Cellular Ltd. The merger -- which was supposed to have been completed last month -- would create India’s largest mobile services company, and the world’s second-largest after China Mobile Ltd. Almost a year ago, India’s competition commission said the two firms could go ahead. Most analysts viewed the merger as a way for Vodafone to edge quietly out of India after years of disappointment.

    3 Companies To Make Trump’s Trade War Feel Irrelevant

    After a couple of decades, it would seem that the idea of free trade or cooperative trade would be an accepted global practice. To fulfill campaign promises and appease his base, Trump is promising “fair trade” and “better deals” for American industry and workers. The chilling effects of trade tensions were felt publicly when badass American icon Harley-Davidson (NYSE:HOG) announced that it would be offshoring international manufacturing for foreign markets due to the threat.

    Vodafone Says It Got India's Conditional Approval for Idea Deal

    Vodafone Group Plc said it received approval from the Indian government to combine with Idea Cellular Ltd., a deal first announced 16 months ago. India’s Department of Telecommunication has approved the merger provided arrears amounting to as much as 72.5 billion rupees ($1.1 billion) are paid to the government, according to the department’s order seen by Bloomberg. The combination will create India’s largest mobile-phone company and help the firms compete with billionaire Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd., which upended the world’s second-largest mobile-phone market by offering free calls and cheap data.

    [$$] Are telecoms companies losing the brand battle? 

    When Vodafone hired the singers Dua Lipa and Liam Payne to perform last year at an event to launch its Voxi youth network, it was the latest sign of a big telecoms company looking to refresh its brand. Telecoms companies are striving to reconnect with consumers and avoid being seen as mere utilities, even as internet businesses capture an ever-larger share of consumer attention. Twenty years ago, telecoms companies were the kings of Adland.

In the United States, Verizon (VZ) and AT&T (T) are working to launch 5G services in select markets later in 2018, while T-Mobile (TMUS) and Sprint (S) are eyeing nationwide 5G coverage by around 2020.

    BT's Fundamental Value Is Overlooked

     BT Group BT is the incumbent telecom operator in the United Kingdom. In 2016, it bought EE, the country's largest wireless telecom operator, creating the only company that owns fixed-line as well as wireless telephone networks in the U.K. The U.K. has been slow to move to converged services, but we believe this acquisition will lead BT to push convergence similar to leading operators in several other European countries. BT's scale as the U.K.'s largest fixed-line, broadband, and wireless telecom operator provides the company with a narrow economic moat due to cost advantages.

    Vodafone said on Wednesday it will begin testing next-generation 5G mobile networks in seven of Britain's 10 largest cities later in 2018, part of a plan to start limited deployments in dense urban areas in some markets next year. Management of global operator Vodafone Group has signalled it is in no rush to roll out 5G, seeing the potential tenfold increase in mobile broadband data speeds it offers as a way to wring greater efficiencies out of network choke points initially. Vodafone UK, Britain's third largest mobile operator, said it is laying the groundwork for 5G services as a supplement to existing 4G networks at 40 locations around Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Liverpool, London and Manchester.

    EU investigates Deutsche Telekom's Dutch deal amid competition concerns

    BRUSSELS/STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Deutsche Telekom (DTEGn.DE) faces a four-month investigation into its bid to buy the Dutch business of Swedish peer Tele2 (TEL2b.ST) after EU antitrust regulators voiced concerns about the deal. The European Commission's investigation, which began on Tuesday, underscores its hard line against telecoms deals which reduce the number of players in a market from four to three and could hit consumers with higher bills. "We are opening this in-depth investigation to ensure, that the proposed transaction between T-Mobile NL and Tele2 NL will not lead to higher prices or less choice in mobile services for Dutch consumers," European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said in a statement.
