Recent Communication Policy Developments
Next generation access networks (NGA) are in a critical phase of development. Present policy decisions are likely to have an impact over the next decades in terms of market structure, service provision, investment and innovation. Furthermore, the rise of smartphones and other devices is driving the boost in mobile broadband traffic and usage. This involves new challenges for spectrum policy, which policy makers have to balance carefully as spectrum is a key competitive asset. This transition is being facilitated by the release of spectrum resources coming from the switch‐over from analogue to digital terrestrial television.
