It’s No Time to Regulate Wireless Telephony

Below is a link to a note worthy piece written by John Mayo, a Professor of Economics, Business and Public Policy in Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. Mr. Mayo’s piece is about the thriving nature of the wireless industry and why over-regulating it would be a huge mistake. Mr. Mayo uses some astounding statistics about the growth in the number of wireless customers and the corresponding decline in cost per minute used to illustrate how the market is doing a great job of regulating this industry without government intervention. He also mentions how providers are adapting to customer demands for portability to further make his point. This piece only goes to further demonstrate that government needs to be very cautious about regulating highly competitive technology industries. I encourage you to take a look.
