Session 4 2 dan lloyd vodafone

  1. 1. Spectrum Policy Vodafone March 2016
  2. 2. The Spectrum Review Vodafone supports reform to the spectrum management framework. The framework needs to perform four functions in relation to property rights: 2Vodafone’s perspectives on the Spectrum Review Define Allocate Enforce Reallocate Key principles: 1. Economic and social benefits should be taken into consideration in the allocation of spectrum. 2. Licences should be technology neutral and commoditised as much as possible, even if allocations are purpose-specific. 3. Once allocated licence holders should control how spectrum is used. 4. Payments terms for spectrum licences should be more flexible.
  3. 3. Old view: Certainty & flexibility are a trade-off Vodafone’s perspectives on the Spectrum Review Apparatus licences - general Licence holder certainty Apparatus licences - broadcast Spectrum licences Class licences Regulatory discretion (flexibility)
  4. 4. Modern view: Certainty & flexibility are compatible Vodafone’s perspectives on the Spectrum Review Apparatus licences - general Licence holder flexibility Licence holder certainty Apparatus licences - broadcast Spectrum licences Class licences Goal of licensing reform Administrative processes (Regulatory burden) Regulatory discretion Regressive, inefficient licensing reform Treating these licences differently will limit system-wide efficiency
  5. 5. Opportunities for reform • Certainty vs. flexibility: Licensing reform must deliver certainty and flexibility for licence holders. • Commoditisation: Tradeable, long-term, technology neutral licences are the key to an effective and efficient licensing system. • Competition & diversity: An emphasis on promoting competition is essential. • Governance: Transparent and timely consultation critical. To promote good governance, legal review mechanisms must be retained. • Pricing & payment: Large current variation in how prices for spectrum are set. Reforms should mandate the use of efficient pricing principles and payment practices. 5Vodafone’s perspectives on the Spectrum Review
