Shareholders of US mobile operator Airtouch on Friday voted to support the company's planned merger with UK operator Vodafone.
The merger, when completed, will create the world's largest mobile operator with over 29 customers in 23 countries.
European regulators and Vodafone shareholders approved the deal last month, with the European Commission requiring Vodafone to divest its interest in German operator E-Plus Mobilfunk, because Airtouch has an interest in rival German operator Mannesmann Mobilfunk. (see Newswire 25 May)
Approval must now be obtained from the US Federal Communications Commission and is expected to be completed by the end of next month.
