caribbean cooperation: rise of the regional regulator
Five member countries of the Organization of East Caribbean States are undergoing a unique experiment in telecommunications liberalization. The reform, supported by a World Bank loan for technical assistance and equipment, has two interesting features. First, it has recently been dramatically enhanced by a legal ruling in one of the member countries that monopoly telecommunications provision is unconstitutional; and second, it is based on a regional rather than a national model of regulation. Already the reforms have begun to show results, with the current monopoly service provider slashing the prices of international calls.
