The Socio-Economic Value of Radio Spectrum used by Utilities in support of their operations

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether there might be an element of socio-economic value attributable to radio spectrum deployed by utilities in the conduct of their business; and if this is the case, to place an indication of the amount of socio-economic value which might thus be overlooked if an award is made purely on the basis of the economic value of the radio spectrum to the utilities concerned.
