Licensing and Regulatory Affairs

Licensing aspects and regulatory issues are crucial considerations for any telecommunications operation. These comprise the rights and obligations under telecommunications and spectrum licences – such as one-time and recurring fees, telecommunications services allowed under the licence, details of assigned spectrum, limitations with regard to the technologies to be deployed, mandatory roll-out and coverage requirements – but also additional ones, such as microwave frequency fees, interconnection regime, national roaming regulations and any enduser price regulations.

Links to technology topics exist in terms of availability, evolution paths and cost efficiency of compatible network infrastructure equipment and mobile terminals (handsets). While we consider technology migration to be part of our due diligence, review and planning services, and also consider it during optimization and innovation assignments, a dedicated mandate to review licensing and regulatory issues may still be required for complex situations, such as spectrum re-farming opportunities.
