Im vorliegenden Papier werden die Ursachen und das Ausmass von so genannten First-Mover Vorteilen (FMV) analysiert und wettbewerbsoekonomische sowie regulierungspolitische Implikationen eroertert. Im Zentrum der Analyse stehen dabei das theoretische Fundament von FMV, die empirischen Befunde zu FMV und eine qualitative und quantitative empirische Analyse zum Schweizer Mobilfunkmarkt. Im Vergleich zu anderen Laendern finden wir signifikante FMV und eine anhaltende Dominanz des Marktfuehrers Swisscom Mobile. Wettbewerbspolitische und regulatorische Massnahmen, die eine solche Position staerken bzw. festigen, werden als wettbewerbsschaedlich identifiziert.
