a)      Suppose cost-based access regulation. Which access price or prices will give the appropriate incentives for downstream entry? Describe!

b)      How will your proposed answer in a) affect the incentives for upstream entry? Describe!

c)       Suppose instead Efficient Component Pricing (ECP) regulation (maintaining all the over assumptions, except for the cost-based access regulation). What access prices will this regulatory regime result in? How will the incentives change for the incumbent and the potential entrants in the upstream and downstream segments?
