Telecommunication economics has evolved into an area of research, which includes technical aspects,
social issues, economic and business factors, and regulation demands. The combination of those four dimensions
is becoming critical for a suitable and viable understanding of communication needs in today’s society.
Therefore, this report on the Dagstuhl Perspectives Seminar ‘‘Telecommunication Economics’’summarizes a number
of key aspects of this field, it develops a set of selected and detailed recommendations, and outlines respective
perspectives, which are being worked on partially already today and which need a much closer attention in
the mid-term future.
