La presenza di un'impresa monopolista che controlla un input rilevante per altre imprese esclude la possibilità di lasciare alle sole forze di mercato la determinazione del suo prez-zo: l'alta probabilità di abusi da parte dell'impresa dominante, di possibili comportamenti predatori o di forme di chiusura dell'accesso impongono un intervento volto a regolarne il prezzo e ad impedire comportamenti anticompetitivi del proprietario della rete. Il proble-ma della regolamentazione del prezzo di interconnessione, sia tra reti fisse che tra reti fis-se e mobili, nasce dunque dall'esistenza di attività potenzialmente concorrenziali, la cui realizzazione dipende dalla possibilità di accesso a una attrezzatura essenziale (essential facility). Dopo una breve descrizione dei principali risultati teorici sulla regolamentazione dei prezzi di accesso, l'obiettivo del lavoro è quello di effettuare una sintesi critica dei principali metodi utilizzati nella pratica alla luce delle più recenti esperienze della Gran Bretagna, degli USA e dell'UE.
