Implementing regulatory reform for telecommunications : the case of Spain

By Patrick Xavier


In December 1998, Spain officially opened to competition its telecommunications market that Telefonica de Espana had monopolized for 74 years. Although this occurred eleven months after most of the other EU countries, in important respects the basic regulatory framework now in place in Spain stands up well to a comparison with other countries. But some problems exist, particularly concerning the effective implementation of reform. This article examines these problems in implementing regulatory reform and offers suggestions for addressing them. In doing so the paper also has a broader aim: by examining the Spanish experience it hopes to be instructive to other countries embarking on regulatory reform
