This paper analyzes the structure and external factors that effect the mobile phone industry in Europe. It explains that Denmark provides an excellent example to examine the effects of price competition. Research finds that deregulation weakens the position of traditional price leaders and that new competition unseats them, if they use innovative business models. The author makes predictions about how deregulation will affect the markets in other countries using Denmark as a model. It claims that theoretical models were able to accurately predict behavior among price leaders and followers in a saturated market. The paper offers graphic representation to qualify points made.
