Combining Two Duopolists

I always thought that if you combined two duopolists, you got a monopolist. Apparently this is untrue – the spinmeisters at Arqiva call it a “unified UK communications infrastructure provider” - too funny.

I suspect this story will run and run as the competition commission get involved and provide plenty of material over the next 12 months. The reasoning that everyone else creates monopolies seems extremely weak to me.
