Abstract:
Based on the rising numbers of broadband Internet users and the resulting higher importance of broadband infrastructures, previous analyses often focused on the relation between competitive market behaviors and the development of customer broadband penetration rates. Additionally, some prognoses also consider the relation between the development of market concentration and customer prices. In both methods, researchers have started to implement some different regulatory variables, which measure the difference between the competition within an infrastructure and between different infrastructures. Here, there is either a simple binary variable (regulation implied: yes or no) or the variable expresses how many connection lines (in relation to the overall market) are affected by regulatory intervention. The target of this and further research will be to expand the current status of knowledge. Besides the analysis of the influence of regulatory frameworks as single (binary) variable on the development of market concentrations, penetration rates and customer prices, two further approaches will be discussed. In the first step, the regulatory variable is changed so that the duration of the implemented regulation is included in this variable. Then, in a second step, regression analyses will examine the relationship between (a) the market and regulatory variables and (b) the broadband connection speed development variables. Chiefly, this paper gives insights about the telecommunication market developments depending on the degree of regulation.
