Communications, Media, and Internet

NERA's Communications, Media, and Internet experts are global leaders in applying economic expertise to critical challenges faced by private and public entities in the telecommunications, media, and postal sectors. With deep industry knowledge and unparalleled experience, our experts specialize in:

  • Regulation and public policy – NERA's experts have extensive experience in regulatory design of wholesale and retail markets, assessing the impact of regulatory decisions on market outcomes, and resolving complex regulatory challenges, often brought on by the convergence of the telecommunications and media sectors. We help clients understand the key regulatory issues and the implications for their businesses, devise appropriate regulatory strategies, and inform the regulatory decision-making process.
  • Antitrust and business litigation – Our telecommunications, media, and internet economists have an unmatched reputation for highly defensible analysis, based on rigorous economics and quantitative methods, and grounded in a thorough understanding of the industry, market forces, and the facts of the case. We work with our clients at all stages of competition and litigation matters, ranging from pre-merger analyses and pre-complaint counseling through discovery, direct and rebuttal testimonies, cross-examination, and oral testimony.
  • Spectrum management – NERA's experts are also at the forefront of integrating economics into spectrum management decisions. We are deeply involved in spectrum pricing, allocation, trading, and refarming efforts ongoing around the globe.
  • Auctions – Our team has an exceptional track record on advising government sellers and private buyers in spectrum auctions around the world. We also advise on auctions of other communications assets, such as broadcast licenses, sports rights, and corporate asset transfers.

Our team includes economists who have worked for broadcasters, mobile network operators, telcos, and postal providers, and for academic institutions and regulatory agencies around the world. We often work with interdisciplinary teams of engineering, finance, and legal experts. Our experience and reach is global, with experts based in Europe, Australia, Asia, and North America working on telecommunications issues throughout the world.
