Abstract: During the last two decades important structural policies have taken place worldwide in the telecommunication sector. Although a comprehensive appraisal of the telecommunication sector reform may still be precipitate, a significant number of studies attempt to assess the consequences of the aforementioned changes. Two types of analysis are usually encountered in the relevant literature: empirical econometric analyses and descriptive analyses. These research papers mainly examine the consequences of the telecommunication market reform and the corporate restructuring of traditional telecommunication organisations, which were fully or partly privatised through public offer or through direct sale to one or more investors. The objective of this paper is to present a survey of the relevant literature and to draw useful conclusions concerning the consequences of the structural changes in the telecommunication markets, which have been internationally adopted. Especially, there has been an attempt to closely examine the consequences of enhanced competition and of PTOs privatization, as well as the impact of an independent regulatory authority on market performance ratios such as telephony coverage, level of investments, labor productivity, prices and quality of the provided services and employment.
