Developing effective competition in the telecommunication sector of the KSA through functional separation

Plum undertook a major study to assess the effects of separating the dominant telecommunications operators in the KSA and to make appropriate recommendations.
The purpose of the study was to study mechanisms for applying separation of the dominant service provider to limit the discrimination against competitors to access wholesale services. The project involved a thorough review of competition in the KSA’s telecommunications markets, assessment of the various separation options and an impact assessment. The study team provided a set of appropriate rules and procedures to implement the recommended separation option.
