Vodafone Hutchison Australia was formed in June 2009 following the merger of Vodafone Australia with Hutchison 3G Australia, each entity owning half of the new company. Vodafone Australia was owned by Vodafone Group Plc and won Australia’s third mobile carrier licence in 1992 and began operations in 1993. It became the third largest mobile carrier in Australia after Telstra and Optus. Hutchison Telecom is owned by Hutchison Whampoa (52%), Leanrose Pty Ltd (11%), Telecom NZ (10%) with the remainder held by the public. Hutchison, through its 3 brand, launched Australia’s first 3G network and services. It owns/operates a 3G WCDMA network – in Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Perth, Canberra, Werribee, Geelong, Campbelltown, Frankston and Wollongong. Both companies offer a comprehensive suite of mobile products to both domestic and business customers. This report describes and analyses the merger, together with a brief history of the merging companies.
