Spectrum Refarming is a spectrum management tool, which can be used to cater for new demand, increase spectrum efficiency or work towards international harmonization of spectrum usage. This paper indicates the process to determine Spectrum Refarming for providing Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) services in Thailand. However, this matter is still under consideration of the Spectrum Refarming Committee which works under the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC). Since the concept of Spectrum Refarming has not been fully materialized and NBTC has not yet reached a conclusion on this matter, this research paper is offers a preliminary study to inform and contribute knowledge to the telecommunications community on the concept of Spectrum Refarming.
