The Proposed changes to 2 GHz spectrum licence technical framework issue for comment has now closed.
The consultation period closed on 8 February 2016. The ACMA received five submissions from:
The ACMA sought comment from interested stakeholders on proposed changes to the technical framework for the 1920–1980 MHz and 2110–2170 MHz (2 GHz) band.
The ACMA reviews the technical frameworks for a spectrum-licensed band as the licences in the band approach expiry. Existing spectrum licences in the 2 GHz band are due to expire on 11 October 2017. The intention is that an updated technical framework will apply to any reissued or reallocated licences in the 2 GHz band from 12 October 2017. The review helps to ensure the framework remains current and is capable of managing interference across the tenure period of a spectrum licence, which may be up to 15 years.
A consultation paper provides detail on the proposed amendments to the framework. The paper and the related legislative instruments proposed to be amended as part of the review of the band’s technical framework are listed below:
