Telecoms, Media and Technology

Connecting you with expertise across the value chain

Making the right connections drives success in the vast telecoms, media and technology (TMT) sector.

Whether you’re a fixed or mobile operator facing regulatory or antitrust hurdles, a media or a technology company looking to maximise the value of your IP, or a regulatory authority trying to make sense of a fast-moving sector, connecting with Oxera’s experts can make all the difference.

A web of support

Oxera’s consultants have garnered vast experience across the TMT value chain, but also throughout other regulated markets, and all areas of economics.

It’s this breadth and depth of expertise that sets Oxera apart, enabling you to access the right support at the right time. It also means ensuring the best outcomes for your customers, whether your business involves broadcasting, fixed or mobile network operations, online platforms, or hardware and technology.

Our experts lead the debate on a wide range of TMT issues, frequently consulting, writing, and speaking on:

  • investment incentives for network operators
  • antitrust issues, such as network-sharing agreements, margin squeeze concerns or self-preferencing in the digital age
  • pricing of access to telecoms networks
  • consumer protection regulation and fairness frameworks
  • the future of digital regulation, including the value of data, the impact of algorithms on market design, and the tension between privacy and competition
  • media convergence
  • intellectual property and patents

Your customers expect voice and broadband services, media, online platforms, and smart devices that work seamlessly and transcend borders.

We match the truly global nature of TMT by supporting corporations, legal teams, regulators, and policymakers internationally—using our economics expertise to get to the heart of the issues and provide innovative solutions.
