- Is there a business case for consolidation in national markets? Is mobile consolidation different from consolidation amongst fixed operators? Do these distinctions matter?
- Is there a case for cross border consolidation in Europe? The experience from outside Europe.
- The interaction between merger control and enforcement and competition law and regulation: if consolidation becomes a reality, will regulators and competition authorities be able to intervene against instances of market power? Should they?
