Spectrum Auctions - Lessons from North America, Europe and Beyond

Date: Wednesday 31 August 2016
Time: 10:30 – 12:30 PM (Registration from 10:00)
Venue: techUK, 10 St Bride Street, London EC4A 4AD

Ever wanted to get to the bottom of spectrum auctions but were afraid to ask? Then join us for this seminar and panel discussion.

With Ofcom’s proposals for the implementation of auctions for spectrum in the 2.3 GHz and 3.4 GHz bands auctions expected shortly, not to mention the release in a few years of 700 MHz for mobile services, we have put together a group of expert speakers from North America and UK to help us understand the different approaches taken on such auctions and their outcomes around the world. We will then look ahead to the future environment, such as 5G and the evolving shape of wireless networks, and consider the lessons and best practice from across the world from which we could benefit.

Issues we will tackle include:

  • Spectrum Auction Design
  • Cleared Spectrum vs Incentive Auctions
  • Approaches on Spectrum Blocks and Lots
  • Regulatory Restraint vs Regulatory Internvention:

- Designing for Competition and Level Playing Fields
- Use It or Loose It
- Coverage and Other Licence Conditions and Durations

Johanne Lemay - Co-President, Lemay – Yates Associates Inc.
Robert Leese - Chief Executive, Smith Institute
Tim Miller – Partner, Plum Consulting

Johanne and Robert will then join a panel discussion chaired by Tim, along with:
Graham Louth - Partner, Aetha Consulting
Mark Falcon – Director, Zephyre
Who will bring, respectively, their perspectives of a former regulator and spectrum bidder.
