Abstract

Portuguese Abstract: As aplicações Over the Top – OTT estão transformando os serviços de telecomunicações como os vemos hoje. Em um ambiente regulatório os impactos existem e muitas dessas aplicações competem diretamente com os serviços prestados pelas operadoras. Por não serem regulados como os demais serviços de telecomunicações, os órgãos reguladores de vários países do mundo mapeiam os impactos e buscam alternativas em como regular essencialmente na competição e na rentabilidade do setor. O trabalho desenvolvido busca demonstrar as consequências da expansão das OTT e a necessidade ou não de intervenção regulatória.
