Building the foundation for the future of mobile

Our mission is to ensure that mobile operators have timely and affordable access to appropriate spectrum to meet the rapidly growing demand for mobile broadband services.

Spectrum is a finite resource essential for so many vital communications services, but it holds no value until it is fuelled by investment from mobile operators, which ultimately creates valued services for all citizens.

Sufficient internationally harmonised spectrum is essential to ensure the quality of service that consumers and businesses have come to expect, and rely on, from mobile networks. Governments should put in place regulatory frameworks that make network investments possible. Policies should also foster widespread coverage and affordable, high-speed services.

For this to work, spectrum should be assigned to the services and mobile operators that can generate the most value to society. The GSMA believe that in order to meet the growing demand from mobile consumers, governments and industry must work together, collectively bringing more of our world online.
