Abstract: Following the introduction of competition and deregulation in telecommunications industry, China has witnessed remarkable growth of telecommunications subscribers since the mid 1990s. This thesis sets up two fixed effect models to examine the impact of competition and deregulation on the growth of telecommunications subscribers in China during 1990 to 2004. These two models integrate diffusion as a technological nature of the growth of telecommunications subscribers, while combined effects of diffusion, competition, and deregulation on the growth of telecommunications subscribers are also investigated. The results of this study are as follows: 1) The growth of telecommunications subscribers in general presents strong diffusion characteristics, which in turn accelerated the growth of telecommunications subscribers. 2) The introduction of competition largely accelerates the growth of fixed line subscribers by enhancing its diffusion characteristic. 3) The introduction of deregulation is found to accelerate the growth of mobile subscribers through also enhancing diffusion.
