Hide / Show Abstract

Universal access policy has become an important aspect of communications regulation. It is, perhaps, one of the few areas where sector-specific regulation may be required indefinitely, even when competition has spread across market boundaries. This is because it aims to meet needs for basic telecommunications which are thought impossible to be met by purely commercial means.
