Digital Dividend Auction

My column for iTnews this week is based on the ACMA's Digital Dividend Spectrum Tune-Up.

In it I use some data put up by DBCDE to speculate on the values that will be raised at auction. You might recall that I estimated the $A equivalent for the French 2.5 GHz auction at $458M. I also noted the Italian 700MHz equivalent raised abiout 2 and a half times as much.

These are consistent with the ranges I've quoted in my article - of low, middle and high estimates for the 700 MHz of 594, 990, and 2970 million dollars, and for the 2.5 GHz of 308, 870, and 1540 million dollars.

It was a very very good spectrum tune-up.
