Possible changes to 28/31 GHz spectrum licences

Spectrum licences in the 28 and 31 GHz bands (27.5-28.35 GHz and 31-31.5 GHz) will expire on 31 January 2014. The lead up to licence expiry provides an opportunity to review licensing arrangements in the bands so that future arrangements maximise the overall public benefit from use of the spectrum and give certainty to incumbent licensees.

The ACMA has developed a consultation paper on possible future arrangements in the bands. The paper sets out our preliminary view that reverting to apparatus licensing might be appropriate in the bands.

We look forward to hearing from interested parties on the possible future arrangements in the 28/31 GHz bands and invite you to make a submission.

The closing date for submissions in response to this consultation paper is Friday 8 March 2013.

Information about expiring spectrum licences in other bands is available here.

We also invite you to subscribe to our monthly engage e-newsletter for further announcements on expiring spectrum licences.

Additional information about the reissue process, the radiofrequency spectrum and spectrum licensing is available on the ACMA website.
