What resulted were generally publicly regulated private monopolies, such as some power, cable-television, and local telephone companies in the United States.

Eight significant differences between monopoly and oligopoly are enclosed here. One such difference is that in monopoly as there is a sole seller of a product or provider of service the competition does not exist at all.

On the other hand, in oligopoly a slight competition is. If oligopolies could sustain cooperation with each other on output and pricing, they could earn profits as if they were a single monopoly. However, each firm in an oligopoly has an incentive to produce more and grab a bigger share of the overall market; when firms start behaving in this way, the market outcome in terms of prices and quantity.
