Vodafone Hutchinson Australia (VHA) and TPG Telecom Limited have received the necessary approvals from the US authorities for their merger to ahead in mid-2020.

VHA CEO Iñaki Berroeta said that the merger preparations were continuing on schedule, despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our teams are prioritising support for our customers through the impacts of COVID-19, but we remain focused on progressing the merger,” Berroeta said.
