First, in the book’s fifth chapter Stefan Buehler and Armin Schmutzler deal with the relationship between collusive behavior and two-way access pricing, before Viktória Kocsis, in Chapter 6, focuses on access pricing under cost asymmetry in telecommunications which has become a major issue in mobile telecommunications markets.

In order to compare these results with a world with access price regulation, Joshua Gans assumes that under an access regulation regime first the regulatory authority chooses a (two-part) access tariff before, in a second stage, infrastructure investments are realized, and, thirdly, access is purchased by competitors. Again, the results depend on the firms’ symmetry: if only one firm can invest, access prices should be set so as to secure both investment and access. This is achieved through cost-sharing – each firm bears the costs proportionally to its profit share, which means that the optimal fixed access fee is proportional to the ratio between the non-investing firm’s profit and total industry profits.
