The Editorial: Regulation and competition in communications markets
04 September 2012
Telecommunications Policy, 2012, 36, 5, 357-359
The special issue of Telecommunications Policy contains a series of papers presented at the first Scientific Seminar of the Communications and Media area of the Florence School of Regulation. All deal with hotly debated topics in evolving communications markets. Three main issues are considered: firstly, the regulation of mobile call termination and its effects on pricing strategies and competition; secondly, the development of broadband and ultra-broadband networks and the supply-side and demand-side policies intended to spur companies’ investment into an infrastructure that is expected to be fundamental for future communications markets and the growth of the whole economy; thirdly, in relation to media markets, this issue presents papers analysing how advertisement on different media such as commercial TV paid or free newspapers, blogs, radio, might be used to affect competition among firms in their respective product markets.
