Entry, Access Pricing, and Welfare in the Telecommunications Industry

Stefan Behringer

No 05-003, JEPS Working Papers from JEPS

Abstract: This paper looks at the effects of entry on welfare in the telecommunication industry. The equilibrium pricing parameters for an incumbent (state) monopoly and for a duopoly situation are determined in which access charges are chosen non-reciprocally. A welfare comparison between the monopoly and duopoly equilibrium situation is undertaken and the welfare consequences of alternative access pricing regimes are investigated.
