Competition in the ICT sector is increasingly taking the shape of
service platforms offering telephony, internet access and television
programmes. Triple play offers a concrete illustration of the
convergence between telecommunications, the internet and the media
industry. It consequently raises a large number of questions regarding
the strategies of various industry players and the viability of their
business models, as well as regulatory frameworks and antitrust
policies. This issue's Dossier provides a range of contributions
that tackle these major questions.
Following on from the Dossier are two papers chosen from a
selection of the best contributions presented at the EURO CPR conference
held in March in Seville. Other papers from this selection may be
published in our forthcoming issue(s).
Lastly, this issue of COMMUNICATIONS & STRATEGIES offers a
series of Features, rounded off by several book reviews, on a diverse
and varied range of topics that should prove of interest to our readers.
We hope that you enjoy this issue,
