Virgin, O2 merger given green light

Following a provisional clearance in April 2021, the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is now allowing the proposed merger of Virgin Media and Virgin Mobile with O2 to go ahead.

Both Virgin and O2 sell wholesale services to a number of mobile operators in the UK. Virgin supplies wholesale leased lines to mobile operators and O2 provides its mobile network to companies that do not have their own.
