The early bird deadline for our Regulating competition in mobile markets training course on June 5-6 has been extended to allow for the easter holidays. The reduced delegate fee is now available until Thursday May 2nd: book now to take advantage of the discount.

The course gives a thorough background in competition policy, explaining the latest approaches and how these evolved. It uses a series of global case studies with a particular focus on the EU regulatory framework, considering how to balance the pros and cons in this evolving policy area.

Regulating competition in mobile markets  also takes a detailed look at the engineering issues, particularly the effect on costs; spectrum efficiency; and arguments for parity in spectrum holdings.

Topics include:

  • The role of spectrum in competition policy
  • Are rival infrastructures wasteful?
  • Can a competitive environment be investment-friendly?
  • Tensions between competition and productive efficiency
  • Concepts of dominance, significant market power and margin squeeze
  • How convergence challenges established thinking
  • OTT services and network neutrality
  • The EU market review regime

 

The course is delivered by two expert trainers, Tom Kiedrowski and Roberto Ercole, who have worked for competition regulators across several sectors and have backgrounds in engineering, competition and telecoms policy.

The standard price is £1200 + VAT  but this is reduced to only £1000 + VAT if you book now. Delegate fees include lunch but not accommodation.

Employees of non-UK governments do not have to pay VAT: full details on the back page of the course brochure.

The course will be held at Bush House,  44-46 Aldwych , London WC2 4LL.
