Description

The advent of 5G and the use of medium and higher frequencies have changed the game. Prices seem to have fallen and interventionist actions have increased.

Radio spectrum is a vital asset for MNOs and a key resource for regulators and citizens.

Radio spectrum used by mobile networks (below 3 GHz) has always been scarce, which pushes MNOs to opt for new spectrum usage techniques.

The main reason for spectrum pricing is to promote efficient use of spectrum and to ensure services for all.

  • How have spectrum prices evolved over the period 2000-2021?
  • How have the components of spectrum pricing changed?
