The massive MIMO effect: has the 3.4-3.8 GHz TDD spectrum become more valuable than 800 MHz (and 700 MHz) FDD?
April 2018


Paradigm change in mobile technology leads to paradigm change in spectrum valuations (observations after the UK auction)

  • Is the EU-harmonised 3.4-3.8 GHz TDD band double as valuable as the EU-harmonised 800 MHz FDD band?
  • Is 100 MHz in 3.4-3.8 GHz TDD 50% more valuable than 2x10 MHz in 800 MHz FDD?
  • Why is the 3.4-3.8 GHz band so interesting and valuable for mobile operators?
  • Is 700 MHz “essential”?
