It doesn’t seem that long ago since BT announced that it was planning to buy EE, but here we are 11 months down the line and the acquisition has been approved, the wait was with the regulators who had to make sure that the two companies together won’t have an unfair advantage over any of the competition. But earlier today the acquisition of EE for £12.5 billion has been approved.

The regulators looked into such as things as what would EE contribute to BT’s Mobile business, which in fact BT have a very small market share in and what would EE bring to the table with it’s broadband service to BT and would that affect the market, as it happens EE have a small market share for broadband.
