The main objective of this article is to analyze the economic fundamentals of an asymmetric regulation, as the one in place in local telephony in Chile, and to discuss the main effects on market competition of different regulatory changes that has been discussed in the Chilean case. The Chilean telecommunication regulation is asymmetric because there are some specific rules applicable only to the dominant company and because it gives certain advantages to a specific sub set of companies. Some characteristics of the asymmetric regulation currently in place in Chile have motivated an interesting discussion, that is useful to review since different countries are experienced an ongoing discussion about this topic.
