dc.description.abstractBeginning with the liberalization processes of the fixed telecommunication markets at the end of the 1990s and the beginning of the 2000s, the base for the evolvement of the broadband internet market developments was set. Through the open market access, many different market players were willing to enter the fixed broadband markets. However, due to missing resources not all the enterprises were able to develop own infrastructures. For this reason, enterprises request access to use the existing infrastructure, especially from the incumbent and former monopolist. Though, incumbents and network operators with infrastructures often were not willing to open the infrastructure freely since the operators feared a devaluation of the taken investments. On that basis, national regulatory authorities in various countries have introduced access regulations. Through the existence of access regulations and the ability to enter the market on a regulatory base in avoiding sunk implementation costs lead to significant effects and various broadband market developments. To get a broad overview, 38 countries in Europe and Asia are regarded. Different developments, various approaches of regulatory regimes as well as national circumstances are included in the further analyses. In estimating the differences, the impact of access regulations on the developments of the four main parameters, competition, penetration rates, prices and connection speeds is considered. In sum, six types of access regulations, unbundling, line sharing, bitstream, resale, virtual unbundling, and fiber regulations are included in the analyses. Descriptive analyses as well as market overviews should figure out, how the broadband market developments under the term of access regulations react. However, in defining an influence of access regulations on the market parameters, a longitudinal panel data analysis with data over ten years is approached. In difference to previous estimations, the impact of access regulations is considered over time. In pursuing the statistical analyses, it can be figured out that several kinds of access regulations, as unbundling, line sharing, and resale have positive effects on the development on the intensity of competition as well as the evolvement of broadband penetration rates. Oppositely, the introduction and keeping of bitstream indicate negative impacts on both factors. For the development of prices and broadband connection speeds, access regulations are less relevant in their impacts. This means, other factors as socio-economic conditions affect more strongly the development of these factors than any introduction of an access regulation. Overall, access regulations keep a role in affecting market parameters, but it must be added that other parameters are more effectful in driving broadband markets than the implementation of any access regulation.th
