INDUSTRY BRIEF: Optus TPG deal delivers ACCC vision for mobile

TLDR version: Optus and TPG Telecom’s regional mobile infrastructure sharing deal will deliver benefits to both parties. Optus improves its return on invested capital while TPG Telecom extends Vodafone’s coverage. The deal also vindicates the ACCC because it accelerates competitive infrastructure investment in regional Australia, which was the ACCC’s guiding principle in its battle against TPG’s deal with Telstra.
