Abstract

The use of Universal Service funding is in theory market friendly and complements liberalisation and competition. However, in practice, particularly in the context of roll out of national broadband networks, the design of USF interventions can do much harm to the telecommunications sector by creating winners and loser,creating/exacerbating barriers to entry and distorting the competitive scenario. In the long run this would impede dynamic efficiency and harm the very objective of universal service.
