Abstract: Telecommunication sector is one of the most developing in last 20 years. The speed of the progress in
inventing new technologies has to be balanced by proper radio spectrum management since radio
spectrum is a scarce resource. The methods of assignment used in past such as beauty contests or
lotteries are no longer those that rule the sector. To keep pace with new technologies, spectrum auctions
were presented as a new method that ensures the best results for state. Since the companies are
competing for the licenses, final price is getting higher and thereby higher revenues go to the state
treasury. In this thesis the behavior of final price in the spectrum auctions was examined. In the end of
the work, recommendations to NRAs were presented to conclude the results of the empirical
examination
