"MNOs should use their multinational scale to protect enterprise customers from the effects of fragmented spectrum regimes for private LTE/5G networks."


The fragmentation of spectrum regimes for private LTE/5G networks creates issues of cost and scale for the whole industry and reduces the demand for services based on MNOs’ licensed spectrum. MNOs are well-placed to address this complexity and protect enterprises from the risks.

This report provides:

  • an overview of the challenges of a fragmented spectrum landscape, including those related to cost and scale
  • analysis of MNOs' role in lowering costs and protecting enterprises from the risks of a fragmented spectrum landscape
  • recommendations for how MNOs can address the different spectrum regimes, use unlicensed spectrum and exploit the wide-area network.
