  1. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.reuters.com/article/us-vodafone-group-m-a-tpg-telecom-factbo/factbox-vodafone-tpg-merger-advances-in-australia-after-hiccups-idUSKBN2070BA) reduced by 70%. (I’m a bot)

    > An Australian court on Thursday backed the A$15 billion merger between TPG Telecom and Vodafone's Australian joint venture despite opposition from the country's competition regulator.

    > In April 2017, TPG entered Australia's 4G mobile market by buying spectrum and announcing plans to build an operation worth $1.4 billion and rival networks run by heavyweights Singapore Telecommunications's Optus, Telstra Corp and Vodafone Group's local arm.

    > The decision appeared to make the regulator's concern irrelevant, given TPG no longer had plans to build its own mobile network.
