Abstract:The third chapter explores the relationship between firm revenues and infrastructure in the US telecommunications industry using quantile regression methods. Under certain assumptions such a relationship is used to measure the welfare impact of infrastructure development. It also provides a quantification of the revenue incentives firms have to invest in additional infrastructure. We use a general econometric methodology that allows us to explore the complete distribution of revenues conditional on infrastructure. Our most important finding is that, controlling for other factors, marginal revenue returns to investment in infrastructure decrease with firm size as measured by its revenues.
