Asymmetric Equilibria and Non-Cooperative Access Pricing in Telecommunications

  • Behringer, Stefan

This paper looks at competition in the Telecommunications industry with non-linear tariffs and network based price discrimination. Allowing for asymmetric networks and non-cooperatively chosen access prices simultaneously allows to explicitly derive non-reciprocal equilibrium access price choices that are above the efficient level.
