Abstract—In Thailand, the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) granted 900 MHz and 1800 MHz spectrum licenses by way of spectrum auction in the end of the year 2015. The licensing of both spectrum bands can be considered as the first transition of the telecommunications industry from concessions to licensing regime in Thailand. In granting the spectrum licenses for telecommunications service by auctioning, the NBTC strives to achieve the regulatory balance composing of the most efficiency of spectrum assignment, free and fair competition, and state benefits, in order to bring about the greatest benefits to the people and the country. While the technology transition after the auctioning will directly benefit the telecommunication and ICT businesses, it will also provide further positive impact on the economy on top of the spectrum fee revenue from the auctions. The objective of this paper is to analyze and review the results of the spectrum auctions in 900 MHz and 1800 MHz in Thailand. Analysis of post-auction impacts in competition and investment is also discussed in this paper. Spectrum cap rule is explained as a future study.
