Mobile telephony is described as a two-sided market where customers are seen as senders and receivers of communications that are mutually beneficial both to callers and receivers. This has implications in terms of market definition and market power. The economics of mobile call termination is discussed in this context.

Keywords: mobile telephony, market definition and call termination
