Band plans | ACMA

Band plans

The Australian Communications and Media Authority’s plans for frequency bands are contained in either frequency band plans or administrative band plans.

Frequency band plans

Frequency band plans are legal instruments that specify the purposes and uses for bands, and may provide for parts of the spectrum to be reserved for public or community services.

Frequency band plans are prepared for parts of the spectrum where there is a clear need arising from Government policy initiatives or community demand.

Administrative band plans

Administrative band plans serve a similar purpose to frequency band plans, but without the latter's statutory obligations. They provide a policy basis for band usage.
