      Network utilities, such as electricity, telephones, and gas, are public utilities that require a fixed network to deliver their services. Because consumers have no choice of network, they risk exploitation by network owners. Once invested, however, a network's capital is sunk, and the bargaining advantage shifts from investor to consumer. The investor, fearing expropriation, may be reluctant. A further motivation behind the privatisation of public utilities has been the expectation that it would be associated with price reform, and that competition among providers would initiate a much needed downward trend of prices and an improvement in the quality of services (Megginson, ; OECD, ).Author: Nevenka Čučković, Krešimir Jurlin, Valentina Vučković.
