Asian Drama: Discovering and Unleashing the Mobile Services
The purpose of this research has been to study privatization, liberalization1, competition, and the establishment of independent regulatory regimes in the telecommunications sector in several centrally planned economies. The liberalization of telecommunication markets through the introduction of regulatory reforms is changing the way countries approach universal access and service policies. This is due, in part, to the fact that services are being provisioned more rapidly, prices are falling, and new and innovative services are being introduced - all to the benefit of economic development. Notwithstanding these benefits, the public-private equity sharing balance still remains unresolved in regulatory reform.
