About the GSMA Spectrum Programme

Why spectrum matters?

Spectrum is a finite resource and valuable national asset, but its true value comes from its use to deliver innovative services to consumers and enterprises. Therefore, long-term planning and clarity on spectrum access are critical for mobile development to support widespread, affordable access to connectivity.

The timely assignment of harmonised radio spectrum for mobile services at the right price and conditions can meet the growing demand for high-speed mobile broadband worldwide.
