dc.description.abstractCompetition between parallel infrastructures incorporates opposingwelfare effects. The gain from reduced deadweight loss might be out-weighed by the inefficient duplication of an existing infrastructure. Usingdata from broadband internet access for Western Europe 2000-2004, thispaper investigates which e¤ect prevails empirically. Infrastructure competition between DSL and cable TV had a significant and positive impacton the broadband penetration. Comparing the additional social surplusattributable to cable competition with the cable investments, we concludethat infrastructure competition has not been welfare enhancing. A theoretical model is provided, formalizing why the e¤ect of competition onpenetration might be limited.en_US
