Expert study by Brattle Group on “Efficiencies in telecommunication network cooperations and mergers”
Europe’s digital infrastructure is undergoing a once-in-a-decade upgrade. At a time when citizens, businesses and political leaders acknowledge the critical importance of availability of digital services, Europe’s telecom operators are at the peak of the 5G investment cycle. Concurrently, Europe is facing complex crises and uncertainty, but one item on the EU agenda is rooted: achieving the “2030 Digital Decade” targets.
A new expert study published today by Brattle Group and commissioned by ETNO, titled “Efficiencies in Telecommunication Network Cooperations and Mergers” explores a wide range of efficiencies that could benefit European citizens and society. The efficiencies identified by Brattle Group go beyond merger proceedings (including efficiencies of cost, quality and infrastructure rollout) and explore further cooperation agreements and out-of-market efficiencies.
The main findings of the expert study are summarised below in a video interview with Kai-Uwe Kühn, Professor of Economics at the University of East Anglia, and Academic Advisor at Brattle Group:
