Telecommunication markets are characterized by a dynamic development of technology and market structures. The specific features of network-based markets, convergence of previously separate spheres and the complex task of market regulation put traditional theoretical approaches as well as current regulatory policies to the test. This book sheds light on some of the challenges ahead. It covers a vast range of subjects from the intricacies of market regulation to new markets for mobile and internet-related services. The diffusion of broadband technology and the emergence of new business strategies that respond to the technological and regulatory challenges are treated in the book's 24 chapters.

From the reviews:"In this constantly evolving field, it is helpful to find in a single volume research that covers regulatory, economic and legal aspects of telecommunications markets. ... this book is recommended to anyone who aims to have a profound understanding of many of the major ongoing debates that are being conducted within the policy-making, academic and industry communities regarding the development of telecommunications markets. The studies presented in the volume ... makes the book attractive to both beginners and experts in the field." (Juan Rendon Schneir, Telecommunications Policy, Vol. 35, 2011)
