Previous consultation: The issue

The closing date for submissions has been extended from 31 January until COB, 7 February 2024.

In our Five-year spectrum outlook 2023–28 (FYSO), we provided information on arrangements and potential issues with:

  • satellite direct-to-mobile services
  • other satellite use of bands without a satellite allocation. 

We also committed to further engaging with industry on the issue.

As part of this work, we held an online spectrum tune-up on 31 October 2023 where we:

  • discussed whether the regulatory environment for satellite direct-to-mobile services is fit-for-purpose
  • heard from interested parties
  • provided an opportunity to discuss potential issues and solutions.

We now invite your submissions on the issues raised in the FYSO and at the tune-up.
