The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has revealed it will oppose a proposed merger between TPG and Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA).

The government this morning unveiled an exposure draft of its much-anticipated legislative response to the increased use of encrypted communications services.
The Federal Government has published the changes it proposes in order to access encrypted communications.
Companies that provide communications services to Australians could be compelled to build new capabilities to help law enforcement agencies access information about how their services are being used, under a draft bill released today by the government.
Huawei Technologies will increase annual spending on R&D to between US$15 billion and US$20 billion, as it races to be a global leader in 5G.
MyRepublic has paid penalties totalling $25,200 following the ACCC issuing two infringement notices for alleged false or misleading representations about its NBN service performance.
Labor has called on the government to extend the opt-out window that allows Australians to request they are not enrolled in the national eHealth record system.
Regardless of whether the government chooses to go forward and ban Huawei from being involved with Australia's next-generation of 5G networks, there will almost certainly be repercussions here that could affect Australian consumers.
Huawei Australia chairman John Lord used his address at the National Press Club in Canberra today to speak out against what he says are ‘myths’ about the Chinese technology company.
