MTN – Margin squeeze and price discrimination

Dr Edwards supported MTN (a mobile network operator in South Africa) in the context of an allegation of margin squeeze and other exclusionary abuses relating to on-net / off-net price differentials (2013 – 2017).  This work included the preparation of a number of expert reports explaining the lack of any evidence of anti-competitive effects of the behaviour and in relation to assessing revenues and costs, as well a meeting with the South African Competition Commission (SACC).  The SACC ceased its investigation in 2017
