Telecommunications

To date, our telecoms related work has focused on two key areas: valuing the potential for electric utilities and other non-telecoms network firms to leverage off of existing rights of way and fiber optics networks by entering the telecoms business, and assessing entry strategies to European and emerging market fixed wire, cable, and cellular markets. The latter analyses have included examination of regulatory regimes, size and growth of target markets, potential for competition from substitutes, and the role of incumbent monopolies.

Additional telecoms work has addressed the creation of new pricing methods for wholesale bandwidth, such as bandwidth exchanges. We have also performed studies of total factor productivity growth related to incentive based ratemaking for large telecoms operators in the US.
