Inter-Modal Competition and Telecommunications Policy in the United States
AbstractThis article discusses changes in the U.S. telecommunications market over the last decade and argues that increasing competitive substitution from wireless and internetbased communications has undermined the rationale for conventional monopoly regulation of incumbent local telephone carriers. The article suggests that the time is right to shift from a regime of a priori rules governing incumbent-form conduct to a regime of ex post competition enforcement.
