(p.353) 10 Conclusions
Controlling Market Power in Telecommunications

This chapter presents conclusions on the analysis and comparison of the five regulatory regimes: (1) the adoption of some sector-specific rules is desirable when a country engages in market opening reforms; (2) even when sector-specific rules have been adopted, antitrust rules remain essential for the economic regulation of telecommunications; (3) the implementation of arrangements and institutional choices are central determinants of the effectiveness of the regulatory regime; (4) there is a growing degree of convergence between countries towards adoption of some of the best practices of economic regulation; and (5) while further adoption of best practices is likely and while increased competition in the local loop could bring about a regulatory shift, the five countries should not adopt absolutely identical regulatory frameworks, rather, specific solutions need to be carefully tailored to specific country circumstances and policy objectives.
