Abstract : We try in this paper to characterize the state of mobile phone market in Tunisia. Our study is based on a survey of foreign experience Europe in detecting collusive behavior and a comparison of the critical threshold of collusion between operators in developing countries like Tunisia. The market power is estimated based on the work of Parker Roller 1997 and the assumption of -Balanced Calling Pattern-. We use then the model of Friedman 1971 to compare the critical threshold of collusion. We show that the -conduct parameter- measuring the intensity of competition is not null during the period 1993-2011. Results show also that collusion is easier on the Tunisian market that on the Algerian, Jordanian, or Moroccan one.
