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)


This two day spectrum online 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.

Valuing the Spectrum is held immediately before our Spectrum Auctions Training. 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.

The venue

The course is being held in a specially designed audio-visual meeting room at Chinaworks, 100 Black Prince Road, London, SE1 7SJ, where PolicyTracker also has its offices.
