Abstract Telecommunications reform in Barbados has opened up the market for new entrants in several areas of services that were previously monopolised as well as established a Price Cap on some of the services provided by the dominant firm in the industry. This paper provides a review of this reform process by analysing recent developments in the telecommunications industry as well as comparing the price cap model in place in Barbados to those in place in other countries. The study also presents an assessment of the performance of the regulated company, in terms of changes in productivity, profitability and prices as well as provides a simulation of potential price change for domestic and international services.
