This study empirically examines national 3G spectrum assignments for the years 2000-2007 to identify the sources and inhibitors of aftermarket network deployment. The analysis reveals that variables controlled by regulators have conflicting impacts on the deployment probability. In particular, placing more than one licence bid and stringent minimum prices enhance deployment. Conversely, encouraging entry and mandating infrastructure sharing discourage deployment. These findings should inform regulators' calculus in designing future 4G spectrum auctions. © 2013 Taylor & Francis.
