Controlling Market Power in Telecommunications

This chapter discusses the origins and characteristics of the regulatory framework for the telecommunications sector in Chile. The Chilean government promoted competition in all segments of the telecommunications market in the early 1980s. Sector-specific rules were largely confined to technical standards, monitored by the telecommunications regulator Subsecretaría de Telecommunicaciones (SUBTEL). The regulatory framework was modified in the late 1980s and in the first half of the 1990s to include further sector-specific rules in pricing, interconnection, and market structure, and to grant additional responsibilities to the regulator. A shift thus occurred from a regulatory framework dominated by economy-wide components to one with more emphasis on sector-specific components.
