In 2004, the National Economic Prosecuting Agency in its report to the Antitrust Court regarding the merge of VTR and Metropolis required, in order to approve the aforementioned merger, the structural separation of the fixed telephony, Internet and Cable TV businesses in three different companies. The objective of this petition was to avoid the transfer of a possible market power in Cable TV to the other two markets through the tying of Cable TV services with Internet and Telephony services. This case study seeks to motivate the discussion of the main aspects that have to be analyze in a horizontal merger of this type, with especial emphasis on the analysis of the relevant market, barriers to entry, tying and exclusion.
