Mexico seeks to define spectrum efficiency metrics | PolicyTracker, Jan 2019
The IFT report includes this draft definition for spectrum efficiency: “the capacity of telecommunications or broadcasting systems to convey the greatest amount of information using a quantity of determined radio spectrum, maintaining the quality of communications to at least a certain minimum level.”

"One draft concern of the metrics is the “social factor”. For example, the Mexican constitution protects plurality, so spectrum efficiency metrics should take this into account. "

"Martinez hopes the IFT’s work could be included in an amended version of ITU-R Recommendation SM.1046, which concerns spectrum use and efficiency. That report, says Martinez, erroneously conflates the effective use of spectrum and its efficient use."

"The 2013 reform also gave the IFT the power to fine companies between 2.01 and six per cent of their turnover for using spectrum inefficiently. Being able to define spectrum efficiency metrics would, therefore, create another tool for the already powerful IFT."

"Spectrum fees are also on the agency’s agenda. IFT commissioner Mario Fromow told the Latin America Spectrum Management conference in September that mobile industry association the GSMA had argued that spectrum fees in Mexico are too high. The IFT wanted its own data on this so has hired a consultant to analyse the value of assigned mobile spectrum in Mexico. This may inform a future review of spectrum fees – if needed – in cooperation with the country’s internal revenue agency."

EXCLUSIVE: The spectrum bands carrying the most data, broken down by carrier | FierceWireless
"... in the charts and maps below, it’s clear that Verizon’s 700 MHz and AWS spectrum holdings are carrying the vast majority of the operator’s data traffic. But T-Mobile’s network is relying extensively on the operator’s 1900 MHz spectrum licenses—and the same goes for AT&T’s network. And Sprint, which is in the process of deploying additional 2.5 GHz services, already transmits much of its data across those licenses in urban areas, but not in rural areas."

Technology agnostic regulatory criteria for licence-exempt spectrum | Digital Policy, Regulation and Governance | Vol 20, No 1
"This paper builds on and expands two other papers on regulatory criteria for license-exempt spectrum which define metrics for spectrum loading and spectrum sharing efficiency. Here, we add metrics for Block Edge Masks and for medium access adaptivity. This gives a complete toolset for the management of radio spectrum."

47 U.S. Code § 307 - Licenses | US Law | LII / Legal Information Institute
(a) Grant
The Commission, if public convenience, interest, or necessity will be served thereby, subject to the limitations of this chapter, shall grant to any applicant therefor a station license provided for by this chapter.

(b) Allocation of facilities
In considering applications for licenses, and modifications and renewals thereof, when and insofar as there is demand for the same, the Commission shall make such distribution of licenses, frequencies, hours of operation, and of power among the several States and communities as to provide a fair, efficient, and equitable distribution of radio service to each of the same.

FCC opens up 100 MHz of spectrum in 5 GHz band for unlicensed Wi-Fi - FierceWireless
"The FCC voted 5-0 to adopt a First Report and Order that makes 100 MHz of the 5 GHz UNII-1 band "more useful for consumers and businesses, and reduce the potential for harmful interference to certain incumbent operations." At issue is the 5150-5250 MHz portion of the Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (UNII) band, whose unlicensed use was restricted to lower wattage and indoor operations. The order eliminates a rule that had prohibited outdoor operations in the band and also increases allowable power levels in the band. However, the FCC staff said that the order also protects incumbent users, most notably mobile satellite service, by placing technical limits on the amount of energy that can be directed up toward satellites. As another measure to protect incumbent users, the FCC is going to require companies to notify the commission if they are deploying more than 1,000 access points in the UNII-1 band.i"

Over 1200 MHz unused or under-used says inventory project — PolicyTracker = May 2012
"The European Commission asked a group of consultants to gather detailed information on current spectrum usage in the member states, analyse how efficiently this was being used and then identify bands where improvements could be made. ... It raises a series of difficult questions: what is efficiency? How can it be measured? Is the data available? But let’s look first at the consultants’ preliminary conclusions The most striking outcome was to graphically illustrate which bands weren’t being used (see below). For most of these bands this problem had already been identified – and solutions proposed...." "So how did the consultants decide which bands were being used efficiently? The Commission’s brief was actually rather broad, asking them to define and analyse efficiency using technical, economic, social and any other relevant criteria. "
