Nevertheless, most advanced countries were anxious that the spectrum bands be harmonised to ensure interoperability and also that developing countries with no history of unlicensed spectrum should legitimise the unlicensed use of the bands as agreed at the WRC.

Morris, A. Mossberg, W. See also Statement of 7 June. Parker, T. Pearson, C. Pelkmans, J. Taafe, J. Mobile operators have bought and sold stakes in one another, entered some markets while exiting others and, less frequently, consummated mergers with one another. It is not immediately obvious why this is the case. Thirdly, many countries in the region are developing countries. This results in relatively low average incomes, with correspondingly low mobile penetration rates.
This chapter explores why this is the case, but before it does it is necessary to comment 59 60 The internationalisation of mobile telecommunications on how internationalisation in the mobile telecommunications industry can be measured.
This discussion will be picked up again in detail in Chapter 9 where data from individual regions are combined to present a worldwide picture. One such indicator would be the number of countries in which the company is present, while another is foreign assets as a percentage of total assets. A third structural indicator is the ratio between domestic and foreign employment. The second broad category of internationalisation indicators are performance indicators, which measure how well the company is doing overseas.
Attitudinal indicators form the third broad category of internationalisation measurement indicators. These measure the relationship between the home country of the company and its overseas operations. A second attitudinal measure is the psychic dispersion of the international operations of a company. These create information asymmetries and thus uncertainties and risks for inward investors. With this in mind, Johanson and Vahlne argue that internationalisation is Adjustment in Asia-Pacific mobile telecommunications 61 incremental.
Companies initially favour foreign markets that are close in terms of psychic distance to their home market before expanding into more distant ones, and when they enter each market their investment increases over time. While there has been some discussion as to the usefulness of the concept and how it may be measured,3 one widely-used approach was suggested by Kogut and Singh who draw on Hofstede to rank countries relative to a given country. It is clearly possible to argue that the use of the individual aforementioned indicators provides an incomplete picture of internationalisation.

As a consequence, some authors have sought to develop composite indices of internationalisation that combine several hitherto separate indicators. Ietto-Gillies , for example, proposed a composite index that combines the ratio of foreign to total assets, sales and employment with a measure of how many countries the company could be present in if it so wished. While this approach has its attractions, the inclusion of companies from small countries is likely to distort the indices since, according to Hassel et al.
In other words, the indices do not control for country size. Assuming that agreement can be reached on which measures are to be chosen, problems emerge when they are combined into a composite index. For example, Sullivan proposes to combine nine measures to ascertain the degree of internationalisation of a company. Although Ramaswamy et al.

It is not clear, they argue, how the various index components relate to one another, and this point, when coupled with their own criticisms, allowed them to conclude that the move to an index measure of internationalisation was premature. Predictably, Sullivan responded to Ramaswamy et al.
Although the literature does provide a wide array of possible ways through which internationalisation could be measured, some are easier to implement than others.

A key factor that determines which measures can and which cannot be used is the availability of data. By no means do all mobile operators describe their international operations in detail. In addition, data may be inconsistent between years. One way to counter such inconsistency is to opt for data that are published regularly at both the individual investment and parent company level. Using data that are available at the individual investment level contributes to negating the problems that emerge from data aggregation. When data are aggregated by line of business, geographical region or parent company, the performance of individual international investments is obscured.
Moreover, the choice of the parent company as the unit of analysis by UNCTAD can potentially obscure the internationalisation of any telecommunications-based subsidiaries. The performance of individual investments is also obscured when partially owned operations are consolidated with those that are wholly owned.
Dassler et al. As a consequence of the limited availability of data, there is a tension between the comprehensiveness of the analysis and its level of detail.
Being comprehensive will increase the number of mobile operators included within the analysis, and thus provide a better picture of internationalisation within the industry, but will do so at the expense of detail. In contrast, greater detail provides a richer understanding of internationalisation but for fewer companies. In so doing, however, the ability of the analysis to comment on changes at an industry-wide level is inevitably limited.
Not only may the mobile operators examined represent a fraction of the internationally minded operators active in the industry, but the analysis will exclude those companies based in countries where accounting and regulatory report requirements are less strict than in Europe or the United States. In this chapter a form of comprehensive approach has been adopted.

Data have been collected on the geographical location of each network, the ownership of the network in terms of how its equity is distributed between shareholders, and the number of subscribers that the network has been able to attract at the end of a given year. Although these data form the basis of our analysis, other data sources such as the amount spent on acquiring licences or stakes in networks are drawn on as available. Table 3. To this can be added an indirect stake of 1.
