2.1 GHz Band Plan
Note: The Television Outside
Broadcast Service (1980-2110 MHz and 2170-2300 MHz) Frequency Band Plan
2012 revoked this Band Plan on 26 March 2012.
The 2.1 GHz Band Frequency Band Plan 2002 came into effect on 1 May
2002 following a period of public comment in January 2002. It was developed
from the Multipoint
Distribution System Frequency Band Plan 2000, which it replaces.
The main purposes of the 2.1 GHz Band Frequency Band Plan 2002 are:
- to provide that 25 July 2002 is the last day when Multipoint
Distribution System (MDS) services may be used in the MDS A Band (2076 -
2111 MHz) in most parts of Australia;
- to allow existing MDS A Band services to continue at specific locations
in Alice Springs, Broken Hill, Tasmania and North Queensland until 30
September 2003, to maintain the delivery of pay television services in
these areas (this was necessary because of unforeseen delays in the
provision of other means of delivery of the pay TV service); and
- to provide for the 2076 - 2110 MHz frequency band to be used for fixed
point-to-point services that will be cleared from other parts of the
spectrum to make way for third generation (3G) mobile phone services.
The Plan was varied in October 2002 to correct some location specific
information, and in September 2003 to allow existing MDS services to continue
to operate at the specific locations referred to above until 31 March 2004.
