    Les télécommunications ont été traditionnellement assurées par des monopoles publics ou des monopoles privés réglementés. Les transformations subies par ce secteur d'activité, tant du point de vue technologique, structurelle que politique (déréglementation et libéralisation) ont eu pour but de favoriser la concurrence, l'innovation, la diversification des produits et la baisse des prix au profit du consommateur. A la lumière des expériences américaines et européennes, peut-on affirmer aujourd'hui que ces politiques de déréglementation ont abouti aux résultats escomptés ? La réponse n'apparaît pas si évidente. Ce document a pour objet d'apporter quelques éléments de réponse aux conséquences économiques et sociales déjà perceptibles de cette déréglementation, et d'étudier les stratégies des opérateurs dans un environnement libéralisé et mondialisé. The telecommunication services have traditionally been provided by public monopolies or private regulated monopolies. The transformations of technology, structure organization and policy (deregulation and liberalization) affecting this sector intended to increase competition, innovation, the variety of services and to reduce their price. But, according to the American and European experiences is it possible to ascertain that this deregulation is proceeding to this outcome? The answer is not so evident. This paper aims to analyze the perceptible economic and social outcomes of this deregulation and to study the operators' strategies.
