Equilibrium non-reciprocal Access Pricing in the Telecommunication Industry

Stefan Behringer

No 05-002, JEPS Working Papers from JEPS

Abstract: This paper looks at competition in the telecommunication industry. We determine the equilibrium pricing parameters for a duopoly situation with a particular emphasis on the role of competitively chosen non-reciprocal access prices. In the symmetric equilibrium the networks optimally choose positive access charge markups which reconciles empirical observation with the theoretical economics literature.
