Abstract
The paper encompasses the problematic approach toward deregulation/reregulation of telecommunications service markets regarding the necessity of the development of facility-based (infrastructure-based) competition. The article contributes towards the discussion of relaxing and reshaping the regulatory grasp when it comes to the stimulation of the emergence of new telecom services. The elaboration delivers a platform to consider incentives and anti-incentives hiding behind the business decisions regarding investment in infrastructure. In the first chapter the investment ladder approach is presented. Then, second chapter of the paper introduces the incentives and anti-incentives for entrants to build their own access platform. In the last part of the article the case of Poland's telecommunications sector is presented. The hypothesis underlying the afore-mentioned matters is that the effective stimulation of facility-based competition induces (some) deregulation of telecommunication markets. (original abstract)
