Abstract

Telecommunications is at the forefront of current economic and social affairs. The digitalisation of networks has destroyed the boundaries which separated them from the fields of electronics and computing. The resultant multiplication of tele-services and their increasing sophistication have exploded the technical and commercial limitations which previously existed. The first part of this book describes the revolution in the telecommunications industry and market in America during the early 1980s, analysing the political, legal and economic factors involved in the process of deregulation. It then reviews the situation in Europe in its progress towards the Single Market and a global European policy for telecommunications.
