Abstract

This study provides an empirical analysis of the impact of telecommunications liberalisation on sector penetration and productivity. The analysis finds that privatisation and competition per se critically impact on penetration and productivity performance. However, the mode of implementing any liberalisation reform matters, viz., privatisation and competition are complementary in impact on liberalised market performance. Distinct patterns of behaviour are found for developed and developing countries for the period 2002-2007.
