Thomas Bach



Dissertation topic:


  • Path Dependencies on the German Broadband Market - An Information Economics Approach Considering the relatively low level of broadband penetration in Germany, the question is raised as to which causes and mechanisms determine the choice between DSL and Cable. The focus lies on the relevance of the information gathering and information processing behaviour of consumers. The problem is approached from an information economics perspective, amended by concepts from path dependency research.
