Whether you work for a regulator, government agency or an operator, you are likely to be involved in valuing the spectrum in some form. It is an essential part of these common activities:

  • Setting reserve prices for an auction
  • Corporate strategic planning for an auction or acquisition
  • Negotiating licence renewal
  • Setting annual spectrum fees
  • Dealing with administered incentive pricing (AIP)


This two day spectrum valuation training course will explain the commonly-used valuation techniques, covering:

  • Benchmarking
  • Business modelling
  • Technical valuation
  • Opportunity cost techniques
  • Company value technique


Working through real-world examples we will show how these are used in practice and how they can be used together in a “triangulated” approach.

Book together with the Spectrum Auctions Masterclass

Valuing the Spectrum is held immediately before the Spectrum Auctions Masterclass in the same venue. Accurate valuation is a vital part of auction preparation, so it can make sense to attend both. The content is designed to be complementary. You can book for both courses online.

Valuing the Spectrum costs £1200 + VAT per delegate but there is a £200 discount if you book more than six weeks in advance. The fees for the Spectrum Auctions Masterclass are the same but there is a further £200 discount if you book both courses together. Download the brochure for further information.

Please note: employees of non-UK governments do not have to pay VAT.

Course format

The course features a flexible combination of lectures; exercises using real-world data and examples; feedback and review sessions; as well as ‘question and answer’ sessions. Class size is limited to 25.
