Inspired by the Colombian mobile telecommunications market, this paper reviews the process by which a government’s spectrum agency decides on the allocation of new spectrum bands to the mobile communications markets, including 4G and mobile broadband. It discusses the elements the spectrum agency needs to consider in order to build an analytical framework that helps assess the most important issues that may have a potential impact on the efficient allocation of spectrum and, consequently, on future market development.
