​ ​Objectives

The Working Group aims to indentify key issues with regards to investment and financing:


  1. ​The sources of financing for operators and Governments alike (notably, Governments should not see spectrum or licensing revenues as revenue cashcows)

  2. The current climate for investment

  3. The impact of competition on investment in reducing profit margins and hence a key source of reinvestment and network upgrades for operators;

  4. The impact of taxation on investment.​​


Working Group held several conference calls and onsite meetings.
