Spectrum Policy
 
The radio communications industry is developing faster than ever before due to the introduction of new advanced technologies and services every day. Therefore the use of radio spectrum has become an integral part of society’s infrastructure.

Spectrum policies of TRCSL are flexible and responsive to the needs of the industry recognizing each class of spectrum user has different requirements. TRCSL also maintains a balance between public sector and commercial users in allocating spectrum to ensure all users have sufficient spectrum to meet their interests.

TRCSL radio spectrum policy is guided by the following principles and best practices that are consistent with international spectrum policies.

 
•  
Spectrum is managed as to make it as widely available as possible and to optimize the efficient  use of radio spectrum  that include radio systems  which consume low power, minimize interference to other systems and do not require additional protection from other  users;
 
• 
Spectrum license conditions are developed so as to enable the economic potential of the radio spectrum to be maximized as  highest extent possible where technology neutral licensing are  adopted  as much as practicable and reduce regulatory barriers to radio frequency access;
 
Create a conducive environment to promote  competition among the industry players  in order to ensure innovative and efficient use of the radio spectrum and promote economic and social benefits for all spectrum users;
 
Appropriate spectrum engineering tools and techniques are utilized to ensure the efficient and effective assignment of radio spectrum;
 
• 
An appropriate re-farming is  adopted in circumstances where there is a justified requirement to re-farm the use of particular  frequency band to another service deployment;
 
Spectrum charges are determined to recover the direct & indirect costs incurred in managing the radio spectrum and  in a manner which will enable efficient use of this scarce national resource and optimum pricing of spectrum  is adopted to discourage wastage or speculative acquisition of spectrum;
 
Adequate spectrum provision is  provided to support emergency telecommunications services in the case of a national emergency or in the case of natural disasters;
 
Reserve appropriate spectrum for future innovative technologies and emergency services;
