Public Consultation on ANC’s Proposal on Spectrum Pricing

 

Background

 

Pursuant to Section 63 of the Decree-Law 15/2012 on the Regulation of Telecommunications Sector, the ANC shall prescribe spectrum fees to reflect the economic value of the radio-frequency spectrum; and to ensure the efficient use of radio-frequency spectrum resources, including the rationing of the use of radio-frequency spectrum in frequency bands, in particular the frequency bands for which the Authority expects demand to exceed supply.

 

Spectrum pricing refers to a range of spectrum management tools including administrative fees and spectrum fees determined by way of Government Policy and/or market mechanisms.

 

The aim of this consultation is to ensure that those with an interest in these areas have an opportunity to comment on this draft regulatory measure. This consultation paper presents draft proposals for public consideration. Your feedback on the draft proposals and questions put forward in this document will assist the relevant Government agencies in their consideration of an appropriate spectrum pricing determination.

The interested parties are invited to register their interests and following the registration of interests, the ANC will contact the interested parties with the draft regulation and the reference number for submitting their comments.
