We have made no estimates on the likely revenues that could be generated by the release of the 500 MHz of publically held spectrum. The purpose of the release is to generate innovation and commercial opportunities for industry rather than to generate revenue. In addition the exact bands to be released have not been decided yet and this would be a significant factor in determining the value of the spectrum to industry.
