Realising benefits of competition

What can others learn from EU and beyond?

  • The objective of competition policy is to improve consumer welfare through efficiencies, both static and dynamic. Is there a trade-off between price and innovation?
  • How should regulators and policy-makers balance investment incentives against mandatory sharing objectives? Which works best, in what circumstances?
  • How can incumbents strategically frustrate the introduction of competition? How can their mindset be changed?
  • What impact do National Broadband Plans have on penetration and take-up? How should broadband policy be adapted to national circumstances?
  • How do we define markets and assess Significant Market Power in a world of convergence and bundled offerings?
  • Can we rely on wholesale regulation to solve all problems at retail level? Do operators deliberately make price comparisons confusing and switching difficult?
