This paper examines global telecommunications alliances and mergers. Companies are combining with increasing frequency. OECD customers, companies, and government drive and shape this trend. Customers drive local infrastructure and multinational services. Company strategies to penetrate foreign markets, exploit production economies, increase control, and decrease competitive pressure increase mergers and alliances. Decreased government intervention may be in order.
