Går priset på bredband ner med fler tjänsteleverantörer i ett stadsnät?

Abstract (Swedish)
This paper examines if competition between internet service providers using city networks
leads to lower prices. The research tests the theory of the circular city that in which the price
depends on the marginal cost as well as the number of competitors in the market. Based on
this theory the cost of a 100 Mbits connection should move towards marginal cost if there are
more internet service providers in city networks. This theory is investigated by using price
information for internet service from 39 different city networks in a multiple regression
analysis. The results confirm the hypothesis that an increase in internet service providers leads
to a lower price in city networks.
