Telecom Argentina-Cablevision merger gets antitrust approval

Monday 2 July 2018 | 10:01 CET | News
Argentina's antitrust watchdog CNDC has finally given its green light to the merger of Telecom Argentina with cable TV provider Cablevision following a 10-month review process but has applied a number of conditions to the deal. These include the requirement to divest fixed broadband assets in 28 different areas in Argentina where the merged companies are the only providers. The corresponding 143,464 customers in the five affected provinces (Cordoba, Buenos Aires, Entre Rios, Misiones and Santa Fe) will have to be passed on to a new operator, said the CNDC in a statement.
