Spectrum Trading - New European Report : HL International Spectrum Review May 2011
"European CEPT administrations issued a new report in early May on spectrum trading procedures within CEPT countries. The report does not make recommendations or set the stage for further legislation. Instead, it gives a good introductory background to the spectrum trading regime in Europe and notes disparities among countries and frequencies bands. It observes that there are “very different transaction patterns (number of licenses and number of transactions)” depending on the frequency bands, which in turn could mean that related competition issues may differ depending in the spectrum involved."
