Broadcom Inc. a global technology leader that designs, develops and supplies semiconductor and infrastructure software solutions, received conditional approval today from the European Commission to complete its acquisition of VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW).
With this decision, the Commission recognizes the importance of this combination in enabling enterprises to accelerate growth and momentum in the multi-cloud ecosystem, and in expanding customer choice and creating more potential for increased innovation and competition.
Broadcom has also received legal merger clearance in Australia, Brazil, Canada, South Africa, and Taiwan, and foreign investment control clearance in all necessary jurisdictions.
While Broadcom believes that its proposed acquisition of VMware will only increase competition and innovation in cloud computing, Broadcom provided the European Commission with a technology access remedy that preserves interoperability, a core principle that would not have changed as a result of this transaction. Broadcom did this to fully address the concerns expressed by the European Commission, and Broadcom welcomes the Commission's decision to accept this access remedy.
Broadcom looks forward to continuing to work constructively with regulators around the world. Broadcom is confident that when regulators conclude their review, they too will see that the combination of Broadcom and VMware will enhance competition in the cloud and benefit enterprise customers by giving them more choice and control over where they locate their workloads. Broadcom continues to expect that the transaction will close in its fiscal year 2023.

Zyxel Communication, an industry-leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet access and connected home products, will supply the WiFi 6E hardware needed to power Windstream’s 8 gig expansion this month, marking a major milestone in both companies’ dual efforts to expand fiber access across the U.S.
As part of its high-speed fiber business, Kinetic by Windstream has enabled 8 gig service to more than 400,000 homes in its predominately rural 18-state service area, giving it a bigger 8 gig footprint than any other carrier within its 18-state service area. Zyxel will assist the fiber optic deployment by providing its EX7710 multi-gigabit ethernet gateway, as well as its WX5610 wireless extender, to customers upgrading to 8G service – allowing for lightning-fast connectivity throughout their home, even when multiple devices are in use.
“Getting 100% fiber optic connections to more homes, especially in underserved communities, is a huge step toward keeping our customers on the cutting edge of Internet accessibility. But with more devices than ever connecting to the network, building a fiber infrastructure is only half the battle,” said Clay Fisher, chief marketing officer at Kinetic. “Zyxel has been an outstanding partner in our efforts to expand broadband, and their hardware will help ensure our customers can experience the full benefits of fiber.”
Zyxel’s WiFi 6E router, EX7710 supports tri-band wireless, adding the new 6GHz bands to deliver faster, more reliable internet access throughout the home and office. Featuring both 10GbE WAN and 10GbE LAN to ensure 10 Gbps line rate data transfers, delivering unmatched connectivity. Experience lightning-fast WiFi speeds of up to 4.8 Gbps on both the 6GHz and 5GHz bands, providing unparalleled connectivity for all your devices, while ensuring smooth, low-latency connections even when multiple users are online.
“Fiber is the future. That’s why it’s been great to see multiple countries dedicate resources to ensure all their residents, whether in the city or the country, have equal access to high-speed Internet,” said Brian Feng, Senior VP of Zyxel Communications. “In the US, we appreciate Windstream’s dedication to ensuring rural areas aren’t left out of the WiFi revolution, and we’re thrilled to be able to play a part in their expansion.”
