Die Schweizer UMTS-Auktion

Abstract

It was a first order media event when at the end of last year the UMTS concessions for the Swiss market were sold for 205 million Swiss francs. The result lagged massively behind the "several billion" francs that had been expected, based on the results of similar auctions abroad. In this paper I explore the reasons for this surprising result. I argue that the result is indeed unsatisfacory in terms of fiscal policy and, possibly, with respect to the implemented allocation.
