Ofcom Mobile Sector Assessment Interactive Executive Summary

« Paragraph 1.35 | Read the full summary | Paragraph 1.33 »


If audiences continue to want to enjoy the same mix of public and private content they have today, we estimate that public funding of between £330-420 million is likely to be required by 2012 in addition to the core licence fee. Towards that total, we estimate existing regulatory assets will contribute around £185 million, leaving a likely gap of £145-235 million. After 2012, it is increasingly difficult to be precise about funding requirements given uncertainty about the wider media environment.

Replacement direct or indirect funding of £145-235 million is likely to be necessary by 2012

I'm an LSE-trained economist. Don't expect me to believe these figures.
