2 Making Use of Resources Frequency spectrum: limited resource... for attractive offers: GSM, DVB-T, UMTS, CB, WiFi Access, WiMAX, UWB, DECT for revenues in tc-sector: e. g. 25,2 billion € fixed lines, 23,5 billion € mobile tc, 7,9 billion € cable-TV, 13,5 billion € others (2005)... for investment: e. g. 2,6 billion € mobile tc, 2 billion € landline (2005)... in backbones: fixed links (2012)

3 3 Frequency Regulation competitional / economic aspects international agreements legal and procedural implementation technical / regulatory aspects Basic properties: anticipating, open, non-discriminatory, transparent, pro-active (but not anticipating business case risks!)

4 Frequency Allocation Table Frequency Plan (past: Frequency Utilisation Plan) Frequency Assignment General or Individual Assignment +Targets of Regulation Federal Government Federal Network Agency +add. demands following TA International Agreements (e.g. RRC-06, WRC-12) Federal Network Agency

5 Example: Allocation Table and Plan Bands allocated to broadcasting service according to the national frequency allocation table and the corresponding frequency plan entries: Long-, Medium- and Short Wave Bands 9 kHz analogue broadcasting, 9 kHz DRM Frequency Band II (87, MHz): 204 Channels (FM-Audio) Frequency Band III ( MHz): 8 Channels, 7 MHz each, 32 frequency blocks 1,75 MHz each, resp. (T-DAB/DMB/DAB+) Frequency Bands IV and V ( MHz): 40 Channels, 8 MHz each (DVB-T) 1,5 GHz-Range (1452 MHz to 1479,5 MHz): 16 Frequency Blocks, 1,75 MHz each (T-DAB/DMB/DAB+) Addiional allocation AND/OR frequency plan entries possible

6 Frequency Assignment Procedures  General assignment Whenever possible!  Individual assignment Different granting procedures: Without competition: by application In case of competition: o Auction (preferred!) or o Tender procedure ( Rules objective, comprehensible, non-discriminatory)

7 Tender procedures Legal criteria  Specialised knowledge  Efficiency  Suitability of plans to be submitted  Promotion of workable competition  Preference for higher degree of coverage In case of no clear evidence of better qualification: decision by drawing lots

8 Rect/„Right“-Angle BA Civil Law or Identity TA Laws of FS Federal States TLO Content Providers FRG FNA FS = Federal States BA = Basic Act / Constitution TLO = Transmission Line Operator TA = Telecommunications Act 16 FS means 16 Chancellies and 13 Media Authorities

9 How it works / should work  Demand for provision of service for a certain territory (Federal States)  (non-mandatory specific pre-procedure for demands per Federal State)  formal demand  Implementation (Federal Network Agency)  Identification of suitable frequency resources  Co-ordination within Germany  International Co-ordination  Frequency Assignment Latest Telecommunication Act (2012): If a program provider is the only holder of the entire capacity from a frequency usage, he may point out the frequency assignment holder
