Cooper’s Law states that the use of radio spectrum is doubling every 30 months. Regulatory liberalisation, advances in technology and new applications mean that this growth is set to continue, despite spectrum being thought of as a limited resource. How will this be possible? What kind of devices, services and demand will there be? What are the pitfalls along the way? Where will innovation happen, and how big will the impact be?
