Key documents


After the original publication of this consultation on 8 December 2020, the ACMA made the following updates on 22 December 2020:

  • Update to page 7 of the consultation paper to state that the current Level of Protection (LOP) in the s.145(4) determination is –103.5 dBm/5 MHz.
  • Updates to pages 7 and 20 of the consultation paper to change the reference bandwidth of the proposed LOP from 1 MHz to 5 MHz.

These changes align with the outcomes of the TLG.

The issue

As part of the ACMA’s broader work program, outlined in the Five-year spectrum outlook 2020–24, we are progressively reviewing existing spectrum licence technical frameworks to cater for new developments such as 5G and Advanced Antenna Systems.

We have recently completed a review of the 2.3 GHz spectrum licence technical framework and propose a number of changes. The attached paper outlines the basis for the changes and our analysis of the possible effect on other services.

Have your say

We’re seeking feedback from stakeholders about the proposed changes.

This includes assessing the potential impact on new and existing services in adjacent bands.
