ACMA media release 61/2011 – 6 July

The Australian Communications and Media Authority will auction licences in mid-July for residual lots in the 2.3 GHz band in regional and remote areas of Australia. The auction is the result of the ACMA making spectrum available in the 2.3 GHz band in April 2011.

The auction will be held on 13 July 2011, at the ACMA's Canberra office, Purple Building, Benjamin Offices, Chan Street, Belconnen. The registered applicants for the auction are NBN Co Limited, Telstra Corporation Limited and BKAL Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of Unwired Australia Pty Ltd. The first auction is expected to commence at 10:00 am.

Members of the public are welcome to attend the auction. However, only registered applicants may bid for the available licences.

The licences being auctioned are spectrum licences that will be issued under the Radiocommunications Act 1992. A list of residual lots for which the registered applicants are eligible to bid, and related information about the 2.3 GHz band, is available on the ACMA's website.
