TRPC Response Paper to "Industry Structure for Next Generation Access Networks", a Consultation Paper Issued by the IDA of Singapore

Our response paper to the following questions posed by the IDA of Singapore:

Question 1: IDA seeks views and comments on the scope of separation that may be included in the regulatory toolkit, particularly differentiation in terms of types of operator, network elements, markets, or any other manner of differentiation. For example, should separation be considered for dominant licensees, and/or network elements that are costly and difficult to replicate, in respect of next generation access networks with extensive coverage etc.

Question 2: IDA recognises that international practices differ in the criteria for imposing structural and/or operational separation, although the policy objective of most jurisdictions when imposing any form of separation is to ensure effective competition in the telecommunication markets. IDA seeks views and comments on the appropriate criteria for the imposition of structural and/or operational separation as a regulatory measure.

Question 3: IDA seeks views and comments on the comparative benefits of structural separation vis-à-vis operational separation, in relation to the scope of separation and the criteria for separation for both structural and operational separation, stated in Questions 1 and 2.
