Regulating Broadband in Chile: The Debate Over Open Access (with Jose Gomez-Ibanez). Harvard Kennedy School.

Published by: John F. Kennedy, School of Government. Harvard University. January, 2012.Abstract: In 2011, Chile’s Undersecretary of Telecommunications, Jorge Atton, was considering adopting a different policy toward regulating competition in Internet services than previously applied to voice telephony. For the previous two decades, Chile had encouraged the emergence of competition in telephone services in part by requiring that the incumbent telephone company give new entrants to the industry access to its customers.  And the previous administration had raised the possibility of imposing somewhat similar “open access” requirements on the providers of broadband Internet services.  Atton was concerned that Chile needed to build the new generation of fiber optic broadband networks and that those investments were being discouraged by investors’ fears that they would eventually be forced to grant competitors access to their networks.  His idea was to guarantee that the government would not require open access to broadband in the future so as to encourage investment and thus more competition.
