Regulatory authorities around the world have employed a diverse range of approaches to the award of telecommunications licenses, including auctions and 'beauty parades.' In particular, mobile licenses have attracted fierce competition, due to the potential for excellent financial returns, combined with the scarcity of radio spectrum. Fixed network licenses are easier to obtain, but applications may still require considerable effort to prepare. For a telecommunications provider to succeed in acquiring a license, it takes an informed partner, prepared bid-winning strategy, a comprehensive business case evaluation and complex production logistics. Further complexity may arise when implementation activities start in parallel with the licensing process.
