I am imagining things or are the assumptions in this paper are
He assumes network providers have non-overlapping territories and
that users have no choice. This was true of phone companies, but I
always thought a distinguishing characteristic of the Internet was
that they WERE overlapping. I can get Internet service from either
comcast or verizon.
He assumes that music downloads etc are subsitutable (his term) that
they all have the same stuff to download, when in fact, Amazon,
iTunes, etc compete to sign exclusive deals with distributors of
content (NBC, Sony, Walt Disney, etc.) to offer the service.
Am I missing something here?
