ACMA Allocation of Residual Spectrum Lots Underway

ACMA Allocation of Residual Spectrum Lots Underway

The ACMA is now proceeding with the allocation of residual spectrum lots in the 2302–2400 MHz (2.3 GHz) band in specified regional and remote areas of Australia and is calling for registrations of interest.

The allocation process

The allocation of these spectrum licences may be completed through two different allocation methods. Lots for which there is more than one applicant will be auctioned using an open ascending bid auction (also known as ‘English outcry’ auction). If there is only one registration of interest for the lot, the ACMA may allocate this lot by pre-determined price.

Information package

Applicants should read this Applicant Information Pack before participating in the allocation process. Applicants should also seek appropriate independent technical, legal or other specialist advice.

Submitting applications

To be eligible to participate in this allocation applicants must register by submitting the following to the ACMA on 1 June 2011:

  • a completed Application Form;
  • an executed Deed of Acknowledgment;
  • payment of the entry fee; and
  • payment of the deposit for each licence on which the applicant intends to bid.

All documents must be delivered to:

The Australian Communications and Media Authority
Operations Branch – 2.3 GHz Allocation
PO Box 78
BELCONNEN ACT 2616
