      is this really all that bad?
      There is less of a monopoly and more of a tidy consolidation.
      We’ll have fewer dodgy telco’s and a bit more professionalism.

Just because you are national doesn’t mean it automatically makes you more profitable. Many could argue the opposite look at internode.
