    Abstract

    Recientemente el regulador español ha implementado un nuevo modelo de interconexión en redes fijas de telecomunicaciones basado en la compra de capacidad que podrá ser utilizado en combinación con el modelo habitual de interconexión por tiempo. Se propone un modelo dinámico de competencia en duopolio en el cual el entrante puede comprar ex ante un cierto nivel de capacidad al incumbente paraluego ambos operadores competir en precios. Se introduce la posibilidad de que el entrante pueda asignar eficientemente el tráfico entre distintas franjas horarias. Los resultados muestran que el uso simultáneo de ambos modelos genera una competencia más agresiva en precios y puede llegar a producir significativas ganancias de eficiencia (asignativa y otras internas a la firma). De cualquier forma, el entrante necesita alcanzar una masa crítica antes de que el nuevo modelo pueda representar una alternativa para él. Además, una vez alcanzado este nivel, su conveniencia para el entrante dependerá de determinadas condiciones.
