5 The Agenda DAY 1: 7 September Welcome breakfast and registration Opening remarks Inauguration Dionisio Pérez-Jácome, Minister of Transport and Communications, Mexico* Welcome speech Mony de Swaan, President, COFETEL, Mexico* Keynote presentation: key challenges in Latin America from an international perspective Fabio Leite, ITU Radiocommunications Bureau* International co-ordination is vital when developing successful spectrum policy and in this presentation, Fabio Leite will give his perspective on the key challenges facing the Latin America region. Technology transference to Latin American countries Convergence and regulatory concerns Digital switchover and the digital dividend Next year s World Radio Conference Finding the spectrum for wireless broadband Mobile data usage is growing at an exponential rate creating pressing issues for regulators and operators alike. How much new spectrum is required? When will it be needed? Is digital dividend spectrum the only answer or can the crisis be solved through the use of more efficient 3G and 4G technologies. What is the scope for reusing the existing spectrum like the 900 MHz and 1800 MHz bands? Could incentive auctions be part of the solution? Moderator: Manuel Rodriguez Arregui, COFETEL advisor This session will take the form of six minute pitches by prominent stakeholders in the region, followed by a group discussion. Jarbas Valente, Counselor, Anatel * Brett Tarnutzer, FCC * Sebastián Cabello, GSMA* Ernesto Flores, CIDE * Richard Womersley, Director, Helios, UK* Wrap up day one The economics of spectrum allocation Access to spectrum underlies many of the most dynamic business sectors; policy in this area is increasingly being seen as essential stimulus for economic growth. This session will address how spectrum policy can foster economic growth, considering the perspective of academics and regulators. Moderator: Dr Fernando Butler, COFETEL advisory council Gala dinner sponsored by Ericsson Thomas Hazlett, George Mason University, USA* Doyle Gallegos, Worldbank* Luis Lucatero, COFETEL* Coffee break Global perspectives Spectrum policy is an area in which the policy community is continually benchmarking against international best practice and this session will focus on case studies from around the world.

15 Spectrum policy as a lever to increase Broadband Penetration and Economic Growth Potential for Latin America Latin America Spectrum Conference, 2011 Mexico City, September 7-8, 2011 Doyle Gallegos World Bank - ICT The importance of Broadband (BB): BB as an economic lever The bottleneck in LAC: Lack of fixed infrastructure The solution: Mobile broadband The LT opportunity and challenges: Fiber optic + Mobile platform The LT approach: Implementing the right policies The first movers: Chile as a case of success Agenda 2 1

16 1. The importance of Broadband (BB) BB has become an economic lever Broadband is playing a transformative role for many economic sectors - Generating employment: Katz (2009)**** estimated that an increase of 8% of BB penetration in 12 LAC countries could result in almost 8% increase on average over their employment rate - Increasing the competitiveness of the businesses and the country as a whole - Integrating the society into the knowledge and information society - Improving the efficiency and quality of public services Notes: * Only includes Germany ** Average of five country studies, including United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and a Middle Eastern country, from various sources 2003 and 2004, and Qiang and Rossotto 2009 study *** Limited to mobile broadband impact in India; + Various countries, upper range applies to developing countries and lower range to developed countries; ++ Sample of 20 OECD countries. **** Countries include Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Venezuela and Uruguay Impact on GDP of 10% increase in BB penetration 1.50% 1.38 % 0.90% Czernich et al % 1.10% Qiang & Rossotto + Source: Katz 2010; Analysis Mason 2010; McKinsey 2010; Qiang & Rossotto 2009, and; Czernich et al , Analysis Mason *** Minimum 0.70% 0.60% McKinsey (average studies) ** Maximum Estimated Impact on LAC GDP of 10% increase in BB penetration Source: IMF for GDP forecast 0.26% 0.24% Katz * Maximum (1.5%) Intermediate (0.87%) Mininum (0.24%) 2011 GDP_PPP Forecast 3 2. The bottleneck in LAC Lack of fixed infrastructure LAC has experienced an impressive growth in mobile network development bridging the gap with OECD countries However, fixed broadband gap has enlarged due to the lack of infrastructure Besides, investments in new fiber optic to expand BB networks are costly and sometimes not economic (especially for certain locations) Mobile telephony penetration (%) Fixed broadband penetration (%) LAC OECD LAC OECD Source: World Bank indicators Source: World Bank indicators 4 2

17 3. The solution Mobile Broadband The trend 12% Broadband access by technology (percentage) Vietnam Emerging countries are shifting investments towards Mobile BB, which is surpassing Fixed BB (cable, ADSL) 8% 4% 0% 2004 Mar 2004 Sep 2005 Mar 2005 Sep 2006 Mar 2006 Sep 2007 Mar 2007 Sep 2008 Mar 2008 Sep 2009 Mar 2009 Sep 2010 Mar 2010 Sep 2011 Mar Fixed Mobile Source: Telegeography database, March 2011 and World Bank database for population data (2008) The long-term scenario However, current backbones, 3G technology, and current spectrum allocations may not be enough to cope with an increasing traffic demand World Forecast of Mobile Data Traffic (Exabits per Month) Source: Cisco Systems 5 4. The LT Opportunity and Challenges Fiber optic + Mobile platform The cost-sustainable opportunity Broad fiber optic backbone Mobile plaftorm Robust and high capacity backbone Part of a regional & international backbone Leveraging the existing mobile network (scalable and less costly approach) Addressing the connectivity gaps 4G is a supportive technologies for the mobile platform The challenges Regulatory and policy enhancements Further investments are necessary Incentives for private sector participation 4G maturity (it is an incipient technology) - Requires additional network investments - Current lack of terminals & voice standards - Refarming and reuse of spectrum 6 3

18 5. The LT Approach Implementation of the right policies 3 Release of suitable spectrum for mobile broadband 1 2 Enabling and fostering development of backbone networks Ensure the capacity to meet demand Create incentives to attract private investment and intervene when necessary Infrastructure sharing Incentives for infrastructure sharing amongst operators to share costs and reduce investment Incentivizes for sharing of fiber infrastructure deployed by other utilities (e.g. electricity, roads, water) Especially in lower bands (that allow wider coverage at lower costs) Leverage digital switchover of broadcasting services to release spectrum Spectrum neutrality Avoid imposing technology/ service restrictions on spectrum Targeted coverage obligations Incentivizes for coverage in underserved areas (link obligations to spectrum granting) Avoid spectrum hoarding Control of appropriate use (e.g. not distorting the market) 7 6.The first movers Chile as a case of success The outcome Broadband access by technology BB uptake has been driven by mobile BB Fixed BB technologies (e.g ADSL, Cable) have been surpassed by mobile Thousands 1,200 1, % of the country will be covered with BB ADSL Cable Mobile Source: SUBTEL database, 2010 The spectrum approach License spectrum to foster BB in underserved areas - Introducing coverage obligations to reach underserved locations - Providing incentives: offered a subsidy through a reverse auction - The auction winner (ENTEL) has achieved the largest share of mobile BB Thousands Mobile broadband subscriptions per operator Jan-13 Source: SUBTEL Mar-13 May-13 Jul-13 Sep-13 Nov-13 Jan-14 Mar-14 May-14 Jul-14 Sep-14 Movistar Claro Entel Nov-14 Jan-15 Mar
