2022–27 five-year spectrum outlook

The Five-year spectrum outlook 2022–27 (FYSO) provides a broad overview of trends that affect spectrum management and factors used to inform the ACMA's planning and spectrum allocation priorities.

The FYSO also includes a detailed annual work program, with activities and milestones for the 2022–23 financial year.

We are continuing to implement planning outcomes to support the deployment of 5G services in Australia, are commencing our consideration of expiring spectrum licences, and remain focused on our reviewing legislative instruments due to sunset. We will continue to monitor the demand for spectrum for non-geostationary satellite orbit (NGSO) constellations and relevant emerging regulatory arrangements, and monitor international developments on terahertz spectrum.
