Synopsis

The objectives behind the research were to analyse regulatory practices followed across a range of international markets with regard to the renewal of mobile telephony licenses and their associated spectrum entitlements. The analysis addresses a range of areas primarily based on the components shown in the diagram below.

Fifteen countries where renewal of licences has taken place in recent years with varying outcomes have been analysed in this report. From this, five prime countries were nominated for in-depth analysis. The prime countries were selected based on a combination of factors, principally:

• Availability and completeness of trustworthy information;

• Overall relevance (e.g. timescale, frequency bands);

• Geographic distribution;

• Diversity of approach taken by chosen comparators in facilitating licence renewals. In addition to the in-depth analysis of the five prime countries, the report also contains a more concise overview of developments and practices in the remaining ten countries.
