Australia 26 GHz auction winners to pay spectrum access charges in 5 installments

Monday 26 October 2020 | 10:24 CET | News
The Australian government has announced that successful bidders in the upcoming 26 GHz spectrum auction will be able to pay their spectrum access charges in 5 installments, to support the rollout of 5G infrastructure. The Minister for Communications, Cyber Safety and the Arts has directed ACMA to implement this decision in its preparations for the auction, which is scheduled for launch in April 2021. The 26 GHz band will complement spectrum in the 3.4–3.7 GHz band, which is already being used by mobile network operators to deploy 5G services.
