Chapter eight engages in systematic comparison of postal reform in France, Germany and Britain. A first section summarises the politics of postal reform in the three countries, scrutinising the expectations formulated in chapter two in the light of the empirical findings. A second section elaborates on the extent to which the postal reform record in these three countries differs from change in the telecoms and electricity sectors, in order to delineate country-specificities from sector-specificities. The remainder of the chapter discusses the regulatory regimes that have emerged in the three countries, comparing them to postal policy and regulation in other EU member states.
