I think it's going to be a mixed bag. As it will help BT with Home Broadband (Home Broadband in UK is not up to the par of Mobile networks). Yes, it might have negative effects on Mobile consumers.
CJ, 16 Jan 2016There are still 4 operators in the UK not 3. Instead of EE/Three/O2/Vodafone it'll be BT/Three... moreUnless the 3-O2 merger goes ahead, which was looking unlikely until now...

No big deal really, if anything should make things more beneficial to those who want quad play services, as instead of just Virgin offering this it'll be BT too, so multi-service discounts are likely available, or better retention deals.
Business knows that the more service a customer has with them the less likely they are to leave.. it'll just be interesting to see how things change within BT/EE - ie > Will they offer a proper 'capped' service so customers can't exceed their allowances, and will they allow tethering as EE do at the moment..
another step towards a BT monopoly and customers will suffer, the mobile market is contracting into three networks and the government is allowing this, where is the competition?.
