Spectrum Valuation

Training Course

Putting a value on different bands is an essential skill for everyone with a professional interest in the spectrum world.

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)
  • Agreeing a commercial framework for spectrum sharing


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

  • Benchmarking
  • Business modelling
  • Technical valuation
  • Opportunity cost techniques
  • Economic modelling
  • 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.

Valuing the spectrum  will also show how to understand company accounts, how to use  financial analysis to assess the impact of regulation, and cover the debates over appropriate models and methodologies.
