PolicyTracker podcast moves to current issues…

Podcast team tackles recent policy debates.

| PolicyTracker

We hope you enjoyed our Spectrum Policy 101 podcast series. We will be returning to general introductions to aspects of spectrum management in the near future, but for the moment we are turning our attention to the policy debates underlying recent news.

Our first topic is wholesale mobile networks. Poland has abandoned its plan to adopt the wholesale approach for 5G in the 700 MHz band and Rwanda’s wholesale 4G network will soon be opened to competition. Wholesale networks continue to operate in Malaysia and Mexico but do these latest setbacks signal the beginning of the end for this approach?

In our latest podcast, we consider whether the concerns that gave rise to single mobile networks are still relevant; whether they are now being met by other policy instruments; and whether this approach has a future in the 5G era.

Listen below and on all major podcast platforms.
