Abstract—The new digital ecosystem now revolves around Mobile Broadband—digital content, social networking and online commerce are a few examples of a plethora of services integrated in the mobile ecosystem. The mobile ecosystem relies heavily on availability and affordability of
mobile broadband networks, smart phones, tablets and a wide range of supporting equipment to ensure widespread penetration. The ecosystem offers significant advantages not only to developed countries with high ICT skills, but even more so to developing countries and unconnected populations. The practicality of providing these solutions from mobile broadband arises from the fact that these underserved and poverty-stricken citizens may not have access to financial services and other basic services but have high mobile phone penetration. Analysis and regulatory framework was originated based on secondary research and primary research from in-depth interview with subject matter experts. Hence, this study has concluded a supportive regulatory framework that encourages the government and regulators to cooperate and encourage innovation pushing the creation of mobile industries and transition to digital economy. This study makes use of previous international experiences to provide the detailed recommendations of the supportive regulatory policy, which
are tried and verified. Based on the aforementioned previous international endeavors, this study concludes that in order to stimulate economies of scale, facilitate compatible equipment affordability and ensure quality mobile broadband, spectrum assignment for 4G and the preparation of 700MHz Digital Dividend band allocation for regulators is highly recommended.
