Monday 4 September 2017 | 19:45 CET | News
The Australian government has announced its decision about allocation limits for an upcoming auction of residual spectrum in the 1800 MHz, 2 GHz, 2.3 GHz and 3.4 GHz bands. In accordance with advice from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), the government will remove existing allocation limits in the 2 GHz band to allow all operators to bid for residual spectrum from previous auctions. The existing allocation limits in the 1800 MHz band will be retained. No allocation limits will apply in the 2.3 GHz and 3.4 GHz bands.
