Book Review –Telecommunications Regulation Handbook

Review of Hank Intven (2000) ed. Telecommunications Regulation Handbook, infoDev Program, The World Bank, ISBN #0-9697178-7-3.

Book Review –Telecommunications Regulation Handbook

the first remarkable achievement of this volume is to bring into collaboration the Bank and the ITU, with a foreword from both sides. And a very fruitful collaboration it is. The Handbook covers six modules: an overview of telecommunications regulation, licensing, interconnection, competition policy, price regulation and universal service, with appendices on the WTO’s Regulation Reference paper, the economics of telecommunications prices and costs, a glossary, and a list of references.
