NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA) was formed following the merger of Vodafone Australia with Hutchison Telecoms, each entity owning half of the new company.

Read the full report:

Hutchison and Vodafone now operate under the business name VHA, with products still marketed under the Vodafone brand.
Vodafone's infrastructure has seen a fundamental overhaul, largely due to the successful refarming of its 850MHz concessions which allowed it to convert 3G to LTE across the country.

Vodafone Australia has begun committing major resources to evaluating a potential fixed-line play over NBN. It is also targeting leadership in the next generation of mobile, announcing that it will start running 5G lab trials and demonstrations.

Vodafone Australia is also looking to take leadership in the growing Internet of Things space, drawing on the expertise of the Vodafone Group globally.

Vodafone has begun a large half-decade network transformation project: virtualizing both its core and IP networks in its transition to a 5G environment.
It is planning to launch fixed broadband service via the NBN in selected areas by 2018 and has been investing heavily to establish its own NBN infrastructure. BuddeComm surmises that if Vodafone did not enter the fixed-line business despite the obvious opportunities in place it may become a target for fixed-line players.

Companied covered in this report include:
Telstra, Optus, VHA, Vodafone, 3, Hutchison (HTA).
