This book examines competition and regulation in the liberalized telecommunications markets. It fills the gap between the existing economic literature on competition and the real-life application of theory to policy. Paul de Bijl and Martin Peitz analyze a broad range of market constellations; in particular, the hot topic of access price regulation in asymmetric markets. The study is a valuable resource for academics, regulators and telecommunications professionals. It is accompanied by extensive simulation programs.
