Regulatory Trade-offs

Communications policy and regulatory objectives are wide ranging and complex. Countries seek affordable, diverse, widely available and used services of a high quality, but virtually all regulatory decisions involve trade-offs between these objectives. A given decision may support one policy objective, but perhaps impede another, or come at a cash cost to be borne by the treasury.

Communications Chambers worked with the WEF and Vodafone to understand such trade-offs, and to develop an online 'spirit level' tool to map of how countries around the world are striking different balances between telecoms objectives.
