Spectrum valuation is significant in helping policymakers prepare new technology regulations to address unique circumstances, such as location-specific services in industrial areas with larger spectrum bands. This paper presents the results of a study on the economic valuation of 5G spectrum at millimeter wave (mmWave) for accelerating broadband development. It uses a case study of industrial areas in Indonesia, focusing on the effects of frequency bands of 26 GHz and 28 GHz on three factors of an engineering-economic model: maximal cellular coverage, cost per square kilometer (in terms of capital expenditures (CAPEX) and Operational expenditures (OPEX)), and spectrum value per MHz population. The results showed that the mmWave utilization for 5G services requires higher infrastructure expenses. Population density also has a significant influence on spectrum valuation in both lower and higher frequency bands.
