Abstract

The domestic and international telecommunications industry is in a state of upheaval. Domestically, the Telecommunications Act of 1996 is producing increased competition, industry consolidation, and regulatory uncertainty in the wireline market. In addition, the market presence of PCS providers is introducing a new dynamic to the wireless market and technological innovations are blurring the distinctions between the voice and data markets and the wireline and wireless markets. Internationally, government-owned telephone operations are being privatized and telecommunications infrastructure is being upgraded to provide a presence in the new global marketplace. All of these factors are causing the pace of change in telecommunications to rapidly accelerate.
