Synopsis

With the progressive deregulation of the telecommunications industry, it was estimated that new entrants would win a significant portion of the market from the incumbents. This has not proven to be the case. The reasons for their failure mainly related to their adopting the business models of the incumbents, and failing to make viable wholesale arrangements for access to the incumbents’ networks. The cost of duplicating the networks was prohibitive, leaving the newcomers at the mercy of the network owners.
