Universal Service Obligations

Universal Service Obligations. This paper reviews the rationale for imposing Universal Service Obligations, on services such as postal systems, telecommunications and broadcasting. It then addresses some of the practical problems introduced by the ongoing liberalisation process. Regulators now face the challenging problem of organising the provision and financing of universal service in a competitive environment. "The Interplay Between Regulation and Competitions: The Case of Universal Service Obligations" by Steffen Hoernig and Tommaso Valletti is published by CESIfo.
