5G handsets are here but are the networks ready? | PolicyTracker: Feb 2019
"The mobile trade association GSMA says that LTE will continue to see strong growth in the coming years. It expects 4G to account for 60 per cent of global connections by 2025, while 5G will only make up 15 per cent of the global total during the same period."

"Building 5G networks is a huge investment, the GSMA says. Afke Schaart, Vice President and head of Europe, Russia and CIS at the association, claims that the rollout of 5G in Europe will cost €500 billion. "

“3.5 GHz with massive MIMO has better coverage than 1.8 GHz.”

Harmful spectrum pricing driven by political decisions, GSMA says | PolicyTracker, Aug 2018
"Spectrum prices in developing nations are on average three times greater than in developed countries in proportion with income per capita, according to a report recently published by mobile industry association the GSMA. The association believes the figure is driven by legislative decisions rather than market forces."

"High spectrum prices in developing countries are linked to more expensive and lower quality mobile broadband services, the report says."

High spectrum prices damage mobile market development, GSMA study claims — PolicyTracker: Mar 2017
"The average final price paid in spectrum auctions increased by 250 per cent between 2008 and 2016, according to a study carried out for mobile industry association the GSMA. Reserve prices have more than quadrupled in the same period, the study says."

"Carlo Cambini of the University of Torino and Nicola Garelli of the University of Milan have compiled a quantitative analysis of spectrum fees and market performance. They reach a very different conclusion."
