Current research reports

The PolicyTracker Spectrum Handbook

How is commercial spectrum currently used? What are the policies and priorities of the leading players and leading countries? What does WRC-19 mean for the mobile, satellite and unlicensed sectors?

The PolicyTracker Spectrum Handbook answers these questions in detail through an analysis of spectrum bands and the views of vendors, operators, OTT players and national administrations.

Now in its fifth edition the PolicyTracker Spectrum Handbook is 222 pages long with 96 graphs and tables. It is based on wide-ranging interviews with key industry professionals and draws on authoritative data from the PolicyTracker Spectrum Database of over 4000 licences worldwide.
