ComReg remained busy during the final quarter of 2013, introducing a number of important initiatives and wrapping-up others. MNOs were able to bolster their existing spectrum portfolios and apply for additional blocks of 1800 MHz spectrum that had not been assigned during the 2012 Multi-Band Spectrum Auction. ComReg’s MTR decision remained in the spotlight, with ComReg launching its appeal against Vodafone’s High Court success.

So what does 2014 hold? With the launch of LTE services across Europe and in Ireland, spectrum remains on everyone’s minds. One area however, which does not seem to be progressing at speed is ComReg’s response and final decision on spectrum trading in the RSPP bands.  Hopefully, 2014 will see ComReg issue its much-awaited guidance and Ireland will see its first commercial spectrum trading arrangements.
