Assessing Competition in U.S. Wireless Markets: Review of the FCC’s Competition Reports
July 26, 2011
12:00 - 2:00 PM
Faulhaber, Furchtgott-Roth, Hahn
Competition for wireless services is not a distant hypothetical concept for most Americans. More than 90% of all Americans use wireless phones; some of us have more than one wireless device. On television, on radio, in newspapers, and on the Internet, we are greeted with advertisements for wireless communications services. Many consumers upgrade their services every year or two to take advantage of better phones, new services, and lower prices.
Competition in the wireless industry is also examined by the Federal Communications Commission. Each year, the FCC prepares a report on competition in the wireless industry.
Hudson Institute’s Center for Economics of the Internet was pleased to present a seminar on competition in the wireless industry. Professor Gerald Faulhaber of the University of Pennsylvania and Professor Robert Hahn of Oxford University discussed their paper, entitled “Assessing Competition in U.S. Wireless Markets: Review of the FCC’s Competition Reports.” They discussed the actual state of competition, how it is measured, and the consequences of measuring it badly. Senior Fellow and Director of the Center, Harold Furchtgott-Roth, introduced and moderated the discussion.
