Part of the Topics in Regulatory Economics and Policy Series book series (TREP, volume 33)


The last 10 to 15 years have seen enormous structural change in the UK telephony market. The challenge to forecasters has been to retain the traditional strengths of whole market models, while adding the ability to model a range of product and carrier development scenarios.
