Entry, access pricing, and welfare in the telecommunications industry
This paper investigates the effects of entry on welfare in the Telecommunications industry. Equilibrium pricing parameters for monopoly and duopoly situations are determined where access charges are chosen non-cooperatively. Welfare comparisons between alternative access pricing regimes are also performed.
