Competition in international long-distance telecommunications: a symbiotic production approach

ABSTRACT
In this paper a symbiotic production model to analyse international telecommunication market is introduced. Using a conjectural variation approach we formalize the carriers strategic behaviour in a growing competitive pressure market. The effect of competition is analysed both between carriers in the final market, and in the intermediate market in which carriers compete over tariffs to get an appropriate distribution of profits. We show the firms have an incentive to cooperate or to collude depending upon the conjectural variations. The obtained results may have implications on consumer prices.
