Abstract

Identifies the fixed/mobile communications convergence phenomenon, which characterizes the telecommunications market technologically and commercially, and analyses the regulatory consequences of convergence. Pinpoints the task of the regulator as being to be simultaneously defending the interests of the consumer and the industry. Concludes regulation should exceed its current tripartite role to enable the policy to be carried out.
