This section shows technology changes in mobile communications field, like adaptive spectrum usage, 4G mobile services, new M-applications. A theoretic model is shown about the joining process of the value chain, and conflicts are shown on vertical integration in both directions. The staged rises of the mobile communications’ level lead two main types of regulator activities. As a consequence in the near future there are some steps by the regulatory agency to be done.
