UMTS auctions, the list of licence holders, information on allotments and a list of principles ("Infrastructure Sharing Principles") to clarify the extent to which and the technical conditions under which shared use of infrastructure is compatible with the UMTS Award Conditions. The search results for GSM 1800 auctions lead to various links to information documents on the licence awarded, press releases on the subject and documents about the licences offered and the procedure, which were produced before the auction took place. The WLL area provides a short summary of the selection procedure applied and the results in terms of companies selected and coverage areas.

ECC REPORT 65 Page 6 2.3 Analysis published Finland published a report on the 3G beauty contests in March 1999. It includes details of all the applicants, the selected applicants, the selection procedure and selection criteria used, the conditions for obtaining a licence and the anticipated impact of the award of 3G licence on the telecom market and society as a whole. This document is an analysis of what happened at the time licences were awarded. The French regulator has published comprehensive information on UMTS and FWA in a dedicated area of their website, including a history of the whole assignment procedure with links to legal documents, press releases and analysis documents. Further studies commissioned to consultants or carried out by specific government bodies on e.g. the economic analysis of UMTS have also been published. The Netherlands commissioned a study in 2001 on “Research into methods of frequency management” that was completed by the consultancy Analysys. Two further studies are only referenced in Dutch. Sweden has written several reports on the subject which are available in Swedish only. One report dealing with the latest thinking on auctions as a method for assigning licenses has been produced in English and has received a positive feedback from the market. Turkey has published a report which is not available in English. The United Kingdom has published a report on 3G auctions, a summary report on the 28 GHz auction and a document gathering feedback from participants in the 3.4 GHz auction. The 3G Report on “The Auction of Radio Spectrum for the Third Generation of Mobile Telephones“, ordered by the House of Commons in 2001, presents an analysis of the objectives pursued via the 3G auction and of the possible reasons why the proceedings led to the outcome we know; it also investigates the design and operation of the auction and presents a conclusion as to the efficiency of the selection procedure. The report also contains some recommendations on the management of radio spectrum and on the use of auctions in the public sector.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
