A Telecommunications Economics COST Network (ECONTEL)

ECONTEL coordinates the development of research methodologies and tools from engineering, media and business research. Regulatory issues helping or hindering the adoption of economically efficient services are identified. ECONTEL mobilizes the critical mass and diversity of economists, business research experts, engineers, and scientists working in communications and content economics.
