Abstract [sv]

År 1993 infördes Telelagen, vilken gjorde att Televerket/Telia konkurrensutsattses. Efter 10 år ersattes denna lag med Lagen om elektronisk kommunikation (LEK) som en anpassning dels till EU:s direktiv, dels till teknisk utveckling och ändrade marknadsförhållanden. I denna studie av telemarknaden i Sverige undersöks hur priser, efterfrågan, marknadsandelar och investeringar inom telefoni och bredband utvecklats efter 2003. Vidare beskrivs hur regleringen förändrats och utvecklats. De regleringar som analyseras appliceras idag på sju producentmarknader där telekomföretag handlar med varandra medan konsekvenserna av regelverket observeras på användarmarknaderna dvs. hos slutkund.

Abstract [en]

In 1993, the Telecommunications Act formally opened the market for telecommunications in Sweden for entry. After 10 years, it was replaced by the Electronic Communications Act (LEK) both to implement a set of EU Directives, and to adapt to technological developments and changing market conditions. The purpose of this study of the telecommunications market in Sweden is to follow up the political objectives for the regulatory reforms in 2003 formulated in the relevant bills and also present an account of the impact of the reform from a consumer perspective. In our synopsis we emphasized that an important part of an assessment of a regulatory reform is to assess the counterfactual technology and market developments that could have taken place without the regulatory reform. This basically means to assess the extent to which an observed sequence of events depends on the regulatory reform and to what extent it depends on other circumstances. This memorandum examines how prices, demand, market shares and investment in telephony and broadband developed after 2003. It also, to some extent, describes how the regulation changed and evolved. Today, the regulations to be analyzed are applied in seven producer markets where telecom companies trade with each other, while the impact of the regulatory framework is observed at user markets i.e. the end customer.
