What is the optimal level of competition in national markets?

This talk took place on Tuesday 11th March 2014 as part of the IIC Telecommunications & Media Forum in Brussels.

  • Is there an optimal level of competition in national markets?  The case of mobile consolidation, in Europe and beyond.  is Germany comparable to Austria (or Ireland)?
  • 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?
