Abstract: This paper studies the effect of regulatory settings and competitive environment on the performance of an emerging new technology, digital mobile telecommunication (2G).

Further, we recognize that different dimensions of market performance interact. This interaction potentially creates tradeoffs for public policies aimed at improving overall performance, while econometrically it may yield biased estimates of the effects of regulatory instruments.
