The study provided coverage statistics for in-home propagation at different frequencies, and in particular obtained a comparison between coverage statistics at 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz. The background requirement was to understand the possible utility of UHF spectrum for Wi-Fi type applications, and to understand the opportunities and limitations afforded by the 5 GHz band[…]
Europe and the US have followed different paths in terms of policy, regulation and market outcomes in relation to the telecommunications sector. In important respects they have diverged, and that divergence now appears to have resulted in path dependence. We explore aspects of this divergence and path dependence in this paper.

To meet this ever-increasing demand cost effectively, operators will need more spectrum and new technology, as a partial alternative to building yet more infrastructure. Governments around the world have announced ambitious targets for spectrum releases to support growth[…]
