Connectivity’s vital role in developed and developing economies has been reinforced during the pandemic’s “new normal” with increased remote work and education, driving higher demand for TMT services. The sector is complex with players with significant market power (SMP), technological advancements, and multiple stakeholders. Expert support is crucial for developing public policy and facing regulatory challenges.
Our team offers consulting to all major stakeholders. We assist regulatory bodies in developing frameworks, spectrum auctions, competition incentives, market analysis, and operator compliance. For SMP operators, we create reference offers and pricing mechanisms. We also support other operators in government funding bids and challenging incumbents for better contractual conditions.
Additionally, we closely collaborate with policymakers and technology users, advising on innovative frameworks for regulating the dynamic digital industry, covering topics like cybersecurity, net neutrality, GDPR, AI, smart cities, and robotics.
We advise regulators and operators on mobile spectrum policy review and development, including assisting on regulatory consultations, helping regulators setting fees for spectrum licenses and devising auction strategies.
We advise regulators and operators with the development of regulatory cost models, including margin squeeze analysis, model design, model construction and other support with price regulation.
We help operators and regulators prepare or audit regulatory accounting submissions, such as accounting separation exercises, as well as accounting-based inputs used for top-down cost models and regulatory asset-based models
We assist regulators and governments in designing telecommunications network strategies and broadband policies, finding innovative mechanisms to help them bridge the digital gap in their societies.
