Friday 15 December 2017 | 14:23 CET | News
Australian operator Telstra has secured 17 of the 39 lots on auction at the recent multiband residual lots auction conducted by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA). Telstra spent AUD 72 million on the additional mobile spectrum. The majority of Telstra's spending was allocated to a block of 3.4Ghz spectrum in Queensland. Some of this spectrum will also support the early evolution to 5G beyond the trials that Telstra has already planned for 2018, the company also said.
