Network competition and interconnection with heterogeneous subscribers

Jong-Hee Hahn
2004 International Journal of Industrial Organization  
Then, the only task of regulation would be to provide a 'focal point' by recommending the networks set access charges equal to the actual call-termination cost, which in fact leads to the efficient equilibrium  ...  Under certain conditions, however, each firm's profit is independent of the reciprocal access charge, and so collusion using access charge cannot be sustained.  ...  Given access charge a, network A adjusts marginal costs based on the rival's market share 1 − m, which is the probability of a call from its subscribers terminating on the rival's network under the uniform  ...

M2M Call Termination – Regulation or Competition?

Tommy Staahl Gabrielsen, Steinar Vagstad
2008 Applied Economics Quarterly  
We review the recent literature on mobile termination rates (MTR) in mobile communication networks (M2M).  ...  This literature shows that mobile networks may have incentives to charge ine¢ cient high termination charges leading to reduced surplus for consumers and society, and therefore should be regulated.  ...  Consequently, the existence of switching costs alone is no reason to set high access charges. 9 In an attempt to restore the collusion e¤ect from high access charges Dessein (2003) introduces heterogeneity  ...
