The Autorité de la concurrence has cleared the proposed creation by La Poste and SFR
of a joint venture on the retail mobile market in France
The Autorité de la concurrence issues today a decision whereby it clears the creation by subsidiaries of La Poste and SFR of la Poste Telecom, a new mobile virtual network player, on the retail mobile market. The new MVNO will take over from Débitel, an operator currently owned by the SFR Group.
This new entity will offer a set of mobile telephony services under its own brand name to both household customers and professional clients. It will do so via the retail network of La Poste.
As the La Poste Group's presence in the mobile telephony sector is very limited, the Autorité considered that the deal did not raise competition issue.
