The Xalam Africa 4G Spectrum Value Report

$1,500.00$2,000.00

How much is African wireless spectrum worth? Buyers and sellers of African spectrum have surprisingly few independent tools for intra-African spectrum transaction benchmarking and value analysis. This report provides such a tool. For the Xalam Africa 4G Spectrum Value Report, we have developed what is arguably the most extensive independent, African-focused analysis of 3G and 4G spectrum value available. We have analyzed 60 spectrum transactions across 20 African markets over the past 10 years (2006-2016), included in around 35 separate processes covering 1100MHz worth of 3G and/or 4G spectrum.

The Xalam Africa 4G Spectrum Value Report assesses the value of various 4G bands in African markets and offers a qualitative and quantitative framework for estimating 4G spectrum value in the African context.

Product Summary

How much is African wireless spectrum worth? African governments have sold around $15bn worth of wireless spectrum since 1998, in three waves of awards covering 2G, 3G and now, 4G frequencies. By our estimates, Africa is sitting on around $5bn worth of 4G spectrum, and over the next 18 months, markets from Egypt to South Africa, Nigeria, Senegal and others will sell or seek to value a trove of frequencies that will pave the way for next generation digital services.

And yet, even as they seek to precisely assess the value of the 4G spectrum on offer, buyers and sellers alike have surprisingly few independent tools for intra-African spectrum transaction benchmarking and value analysis. This report provides such a tool.

The Xalam Africa 4G Spectrum Value Report assesses the value of various 4G bands in African markets and offers a qualitative and quantitative framework for estimating 4G spectrum value in the African context. In addition, the report provides projected value ranges for upcoming and/or anticipated 4G spectrum auctions, including for markets such as Nigeria, South Africa, Egypt and Senegal. Further, the report explores a range of issues related to 3G and 4G spectrum, from the business feasibility of 4G at current spectrum value points to the future of so-called spectrum asset companies.
