Plum produced a comprehensive toolkit for the GSMA covering the allocation of spectrum, awarding of licences, and formation of regulation to enable mobile broadband rollout – particularly in developing countries. The toolkit covered topics as diverse as deciding on which spectrum to allocate to mobile networks, to monitoring its use and working out the best award methodology. The GSMA will use this toolkit in countries worldwide as part of its regulatory education programme.
Following the provision of the toolkit, Plum was asked to produce a training pack which condensed the toolkit into a half-day workshop. The pack was designed to take regulatory bodies through all steps of ensuring that the market was set up to encourage growth in mobile broadband.
