Regulating competition in mobile markets considers how to balance the pros and cons in competition policy: maximising consumer benefits while encouraging investment. It takes a detailed look at the engineering issues, particularly the effect on costs and spectrum efficiency as well as an equitable approach to spectrum holdings.
