Coverage, not revenue, is increasingly the goal of spectrum assignments | PolicyTracker Feb 2018
"After 20 years and three or four generations of mobile technology, governments and regulators are starting to recognise that there is a contradiction between extracting large amounts of money from mobile operators for spectrum licences and then demanding costly network deployments to cover 100 per cent of a country. That’s according to Gérard Pogorel, Emeritus Professor of Economics at top French graduate engineering school Télécom ParisTech."

"It took the French government six months to arrive at a comprehensive contract with operators to renew 4G licences without new auctions but with strong commitments from them to deploy new networks quickly, Pogorel said. . . . By contrast, the Japanese government, which has never held a spectrum auction, is planning one for March, said Pogorel. "
