The value of spectrum in a 5G world
Spectrum is an invaluable asset for mobile network operators (MNO). Additional spectrum provides significant benefits i.e. improves network performance and enables MNOs to deploy new services and technologies such as 5G. But it doesn’t come for free. The value of spectrum depends on many factors, including the existing spectrum portfolio and future needs. Since spectrum is awarded based on the competitive processes (i.e. auctions), MNOs have to develop their business case to understand the value of the spectrum.
So how do MNOs value spectrum?
This talk provides an overview of factors affecting the value of spectrum and approaches used by MNOs and regulators to estimate the value of mobile spectrum in a 5G world.
