The role of political institutions and policy contexts in other national cases of reform was also explored. This research supports the argument that, as in Mexico, political factors determined the specific character of reform in the other countries examined.

This chapter will integrate the findings of previous chapters and provide a generalized conclusion as to why and how domestic political factors determined telecommunications reform in each of the countries studied.

The second section restates the findings for each national case, while the third generalizes the argument about how politics determined the policy decisions.
