Regulation - Case 4

Research project on the effects of different regulatory regimes on NGA investments, consumer surplus, investors surplus and total welfare

Research on regulation and investment in telecommunications Next Generation Networks (NGN). We developed a tractable theoretical equilibrium model that analyses the effects of different regulatory access regimes on incentives to deploy NGN. The model shows that risk-sharing agreements between incumbents and entrants may facilitate investments and benefit consumers relative to Long-Run Incremental Cost (LRIC) regulation.
