Five-year spectrum outlook

Each year we publish our plans to manage spectrum. The five-year spectrum outlook (FYSO) describes the priorities for the next 5 years and our detailed work plan for the coming year.

We’ll publish progress reports to show the status of activities in the most recent FYSO.

How we develop FYSOs

Consultation is an important part of how we develop each FYSO. We invite feedback on the draft of the detailed work plan we will follow for the next 12 months.

Each FYSO generally follows this timeline:

Period Activity
April to June A consultation invites feedback on the draft of the next FYSO.
July to September We review submissions from industry and the community and finalise the priorities.
July to September We publish a progress report on activities in the 12 months to 30 June of that year.
July to September We publish the next FYSO and a response to submissions to the draft.
