Connecting everyone and everything to high-speed mobile services

Our mission is to ensure countries assign allocated spectrum to support mobile connection growth.

With pressure mounting on mobile networks, more coverage and capacity spectrum is needed to meet growing data demands. For example, the digital dividend is only assigned in 64 countries. The rest of the world needs to make this spectrum available to widen mobile access.

The digital dividend is a key enabler for universal broadband access, bringing socio-economic benefits to people in cities and remote areas. In order to cover these areas, lower frequencies with better propagation characteristics are vital. At the same time, users are watching more video content on their mobile devices, making spectrum that opens the door for higher speeds a necessity.

A combination of low, mid and high frequency bands has the potential to deliver on this as long as they are made available in a fair, transparent and stable way with minimal delay and to maximise the benefits for all.
