New Regulatory models

REG.1 : Regulating in times of crisis
Wednesday, 07 October 2009, 11:00 - 12:30, Room B

Regulation is both a substitute for and a compliment to competition - it encourages and protects market entry, protects consumers and ensures ever wider access to services. In the current economic situation some operators find it more difficult to obtain the substantial capital needed to build new networks and hence are questioning existing regulatory structures; especially those that can be seen to potentially reduce operator revenues or remove some of the benefits of innovation.
KEY QUESTIONS: - How will the competitive landscape have changed as we come out of the global financial crisis? - Are regulatory "holidays" justified by the global financial crisis? - When does a market failure require intervention? - What are the Key Performance Indicators that regulators use for self-assessment?
