Agustín Díaz-Pinés PhD defense
Better regulation for convergence of the telecommunications and video industries.
Thesis to be defended on the 9th of september at 9:30 am and it will take place at AX.
This dissertation compares public policy approaches in France, the United Kingdom and the United States in relation to convergence between telecommunications and television/video services and puts forward policy recommendations. It starts from the evident changes that convergence is spreading throughout the ICT ecosystem and how it is changing the relationship between telecommunication operators and content providers. The dissertation provides new thinking in a number of areas relating to convergence of telecommunications and television/video services, such as vertical effects, bundling behaviour, network neutrality or the role of OTT video providers. The dissertation aims, on one hand, at formulating very precise recommendation as to how these aspects should be treated in the new convergent environment and, on other hand, at providing a comprehensive view that captures the big picture of the convergence phenomenon.
