Regulation in telecommunications : a cross approach between law and economics
Regulation in telecommunication industry is one of the most sophisticated sectorial regulation. Two main goals are targeted by public authorities. In one hand, the regulator is trying to build a competitive market to replace the historic monopolistic situation. Now the emphasis is less on the monopolization of the market by the former public operator and more on the risk of collective dominance by a dew dominant operators. In the second hand, the regulator is trying to promote other objectives such as protection of consumers, the territory balance, the defence of national champions. All these objectives can sometimes be in conflict. This paper analyses regulatory objectives and instruments, focusing on the economic and law aspects.
