Associate Director José María Rodríguez and Consultant Luigi Stammati, both based in Frontier’s Madrid office, spoke at the Communication-Policy-Research (CPR) LATAM conference in Cartagena, Colombia today. CPR LATAM is a cross-disciplinary network of research centres which seek to advance knowledge on the social, economic and political impact of Information and Communications Technology in the Americas. The conference focused on key policy and regulatory issues in the telecommunications industry in Latin America.
José María presented the results of an econometric analysis assessing the impact that piracy has on the market structure of pay TV services in Latin America. The study’s findings demonstrate how piracy reduces the size of the market available to legal operators in the Latin American telecommunications sector, which makes it more difficult for new competitors to enter and expand in the market, resulting in a more concentrated market structure.
Frontier (Europe) regularly advises organisations and regulators on competition and policy issues in the telecommunications and media sector.
