" A near monopoly broadband/landlind provider in the UK, will own a major mobile provider."

Ah, takes me back to the late 80's when all you could see round here were BT landlines and subsequently BT Cellnet masts...

Remember when we owned that company? But then the powers-that-be decided that privatising would give us cheaper prices, and subsequently opened the industry up to multiple players when they realised that wasn't working.

Good to see that we're gradually regressing back to being spanked by one big company (it'll be cheaper cos of the synergies I'm told). That we used to own.
