Investigating the impact of spectrum re-assignment in Hong Kong

For OFCA (the Hong Kong regulator), we assessed the impact on service quality and customers after a re-assignment of 3G spectrum (1.9 – 2.2GHz) under a number of potential re-assignment scenarios. As the quantitative analysis spanned several future years we forecast demand requirements and considered technology developments, including the evolution of 3G and 4G technologies, multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) technology, and the use of femtocells. Other supply considerations included spectrum held and deployed by each mobile network operator for provision of mobile services, the Spectrum Release Plan, and the availability of additional spectrum for provision of 3G and 4G mobile services via refarming spectrum in other frequency bands.
