- Unclear roles and responsibilities between the Minister and the Regulator resulting in institutional inefficiencies;
- Gaps in the spectrum management regime with regard to the alignment between national universal service objectives and the licensing of frequency spectrum resources, the setting of spectrum fees, spectrum trading, sharing, re-farming and migration;
- An exclusive spectrum regime which promotes economic growth for a few market players at the expense of broader participation and limited socio-economic development, and therefore an inequitable assignment of spectrum which is in high demand;
- Extending broadband access to rural, remote and underserviced areas; and
- Failure to lower the cost of communications.
