Spectrum auction litigation and regulator communication support

A leading mobile network operator in a high-growth market enlisted Northstream’s support in a spectrum auction litigation about timing and spectrum slicing.

Northstream was responsible to develop a technical spectrum- and capacity model to support the client’s argument that proceeding with the auction as planned would be in the best interest of all stakeholders. Northstream’s model also highlighted the potential detrimental effects in terms of coverage and end user speeds that potential delays of the auction would cause. Furthermore, Northstream provided supporting evidence that the auction setup and spectrum distribution was in line with international standards.

With Northstream’s support, the client was able to create comprehensive and coherent material to support the overall legal process, led by the client’s Counsel.
