Spectrum licensing

Tuesday, 16 November, 2010

The ACMA has completed licensing for spectrum for mobile telecommunications services at more than 2000 sites throughout regional and remote Australia.

The authority called for applications for licences in the 2 GHz band in May 2010 and issued licences for 963 sites to Optus in August. The ACMA has now issued licences for 1401 sites to Telstra.

The 2 GHz band is used by mobile carriers to provide third-generation (3G) mobile services. Further information about the sites where licences have been issued can be found on the ACMA’s website.

The ACMA will now accept applications for additional licences in the 2 GHz band in regional and remote areas of Australia via an over-the-counter administrative process.
