This chapter is based on two propositions: first, that the “death of distance” is changing the scope for trade in telecommunications and related services; second, that the limitations of regulation in Europe are preventing the benefits of such trade from being realized. The chapter is organized as follows. Section 8.2 describes the technological changes that have increased the tradability of, especially, corporate data-processing services carried by communications networks. Section 8.3 outlines problems in measuring trade in telecommunications services. Section 8.4 discusses the consequences of defective regulation of telecommunications services. Section 8.5 considers possible institutional remedies affecting regulation.

Keywords:   telecommunications services, regulation, technological change, trading, corporate data processing services
