  9. 9. SPECTRUM FOR MOBILE © GSMA 2013 ALLOCATION PROCESS REQUIREMENTS  It is a market based allocation process  It allocates at a price that reflects the market value, not seek to maximise revenue for governments  Is competitively neutral and transparent
  10. 10. SPECTRUM FOR MOBILE © GSMA 2013 SPECTRUM AUCTIONS … when there is competition for limited spectrum resources … when demand is expected to exceed supply AUCTIONS ARE AN ECONOMICALLY EFFICIENT WAY TO ALLOCATE SPECTRUM AUCTIONS ARE NOT THE ONLY OPTION AVAILABLE TO GOVERNMENT FOR SPECTRUM ALLOCATION Consultation with mobile operators and other stakeholders is essential AUCTIONS SHOULD REFLECT THE LONG-TERM ECONOMIC VALUE OF THE SPECTRUM, NOT MAXIMISE SHORT-TERM REVENUE FOR GOVERNMENTS Auctions should be fair, transparent and designed for the specific market circumstances
  11. 11. SPECTRUM FOR MOBILE © GSMA 2013 SPECTRUM LICENSING A STABLE LICENSING FRAMEWORK FACILITATES INVESTMENT Establish the licence-renewal approach two to four years in advance Avoid network investment being postponed, as a result Publish the renewal criteria, as well as the terms and conditions to be applied to the renewed licence A RENEWAL PROCESS SHOULD BE DEFINED WELL BEFORE LICENCE EXPIRATION Conduct a public written consultation before key decisions Facilitate international harmonisation Remove service and technology restrictions Develop a road map for spectrum release Ensure rights to use spectrum are clearly specified
