Key documents

The issue

We are reviewing the Television Outside Broadcast (1980–2110 MHz and 2170–2300 MHz) Frequency Band Plan 2012, which sets out the purposes for which the 1980–2110 MHz and 2170–2300 MHz bands may be used.

As an outcome of the ACMA’s review of the 2 GHz band, we are developing spectrum management arrangements to support the introduction of mobile-satellite services (MSS) in the frequency bands 1980–2010 MHz and 2170–2200 MHz, and to facilitate cessation of television outside broadcast (TOB) services in these bands. These arrangements were explained in the 2 GHz outcomes paper published in January 2021, in which we detailed our decisions to replan the 2 GHz band.

As part of our work to implement these arrangements, we are consulting on 2 draft frequency band plans.
