An Analysis of the State of Competition in Long-Distance Telephone Markets
AbstractIn this paper, we examine seven indicia of the effect of regulated competition in long-distance telecommunications. The evidence we have examined suggests that regulation or the threat of antitrust intervention are the major factors which constrain AT&T's prices to small customers. We conclude that small customers have yet to enjoy the full benefits of competition in long distance. Copyright 1997 by Kluwer Academic Publishers
