Welcome to the July edition of the GSMA Policy Insights Newsletter, designed to update you on the latest policy and regulatory developments, research and initiatives impacting the mobile industry. This month we release a new analysis of the spectrum needs of 5G networks across low, mid- and high bands. We also discuss the socio-economic impact of 5G in MENA and the implications of Panama’s move to bring down spectrum prices. Finally, we share highlights of the GSMA summer reception in Brussels. Happy reading!
