Wednesday 14 December 2016 | 09:47 CET | News
The Australia government has announced the latest steps in the upcoming auction of 700 MHz 'digital dividend' spectrum, confirming the reserve price and competition limits for the process. Australia's Minister for Communications has directed the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) to set a reserve price of AUD 1.25 per MHz, per head of population covered. This is the equivalent of the 2013 'digital dividend' auction reserve price, adjusted for a shorter licence term.
