|European Lessons in Liberalization: The German Experience in Telecommunications & Internet Applications|
Hosted by the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information.
In 1998, the "Big Bang" of telecommunications liberalization in the European Union opened markets to competition. It is estimated by some that in 1998, competitive carriers grew to handle as much as 30% of long distance traffic in Germany. Mr. Börnsen is one of the "Commissioners" of the German Regulatory Authority as well as a past parliamentary architect of the telecommunications reform act.
