A monopolist may be allowed to set its access prices within a global price cap which includes both access and retail prices (see Laffont and Tirole, 2000).

More exactly, it is recommended that, after six years, regulatory bodies should analyze whether or not there is competing infrastructure, after eight years, regulators should analyze whether or not competitors have gained significant market shares; and after ten years, it should be examined whether the market is characterized by non-temporary significant market power.
