This chapter begins with an overview of how state ownership of telecommunications evolved during the 20th century. It details the key regulatory issues governments face when privatizing its telecom provider, and offers policy recommendations based on the experiences of countries that have privatized their telecommunications service providers. The two basic methods used to divest telecom ownership stakes and empirical evidence on the effectiveness of telecom privatization are discussed.
