The Effects of Incentive Regulation in the Telecommunications Industry: A Survey
We review recent empirical studies of the performance of incentive regulation in the telecommunications industry. These studies provide evidence that productivity, infrastructure investment, profit levels, telephone penetration and new service offerings have increased under incentive regulation. Service rates have generally remained stable or decreased slightly and service quality does not appear to have been affected adversely. There is no evidence that incentive regulation has led to streamlined regulatory proceedings. Strong evidence that incentive regulation has reduced the costs of providing telephone service has not yet materialized. Copyright 1996 by Kluwer Academic Publishers
