Raising Spectrum Prices Does Not Increase Airtime Prices To Consumers

Over in the UK we've decided to charge the mobile airtime providers more for that scarce spectrum that they're using to provide the service. We're then getting the usual screams of outrage from said airtime providers. What's annoying about said screams is that they do indeed have a valid point, it's just not the one they're making. The communications regulator on Thursday unveiled plans to increase the amount it charges EE, , O2 and Three for using certain bands of the airwaves by between 330pc and 433pc, meaning an increase in combined annual fees from £64.4m to £309m.
