Spectrum Pricing July 2023
Counting only those auctions and assignments for which GSA has fee data, 2021 saw spectrum auctions and assignments reach a total of $140.1 billion, a huge increase on the 2020 value of $37.7 billion. A total of $26.6 billion was allocated in 2022, with the recent auction in India accounting for a large proportion of this. So far in 2023, a total of $549 million worth of spectrum has been auctioned and assigned.
Pricing data supplied in this document only includes completed auctions for which GSA has all the prerequisite data to calculate a price per MHz of bandwidth per population for an individual band. To clarify, data is not included where GSA does not have information about price, bandwidth or population (this can be the case for regional assignments) or only has total information for multiple bands auctioned together.
GSA has been tracking the assignment and auction of C-band spectrum in its various reports. Since the end of 2015, we have identified 60 countries and territories that have auctioned, assigned or renewed licences for C-band spectrum with the intention of opening up the frequency range for mobile broadband and 5G use. Since August 2022, Canada, Kazahkstan, Montenegro, Nigeria and, in this update, Uruguay have completed auctions.
