ACMA releases review of 803-960 MHz band

Wednesday 23 December 2015 | 09:10 CET | News
The Australian Communications and Media Authority has released its decision paper on its review of the 803–960 MHz band. The paper details a range of reforms to the band, as well as a detailed timetable out to 2024 for its implementation. A key impact of the reforms will be the progressive clearance of some services over the next decade to allow for allocation of the 850 MHz 'expansion' band for mobile broadband services. The new allocation will also ultimately make use of a vacant piece of former analog television spectrum (803–820 MHz) that was unable to be used as part of the 700 MHz
