ACCAN recently submitted to the Australian Communication and Media Authority’s (ACMA) consultation on the Proposed approach to expiring spectrum licenses. ACCAN’s submission supports the ACMA’s proposed 4-stage process for considering renewals of expired spectrum licenses (ESL).

Additionally, our submission supports:

  • The introduction of public interest criteria to spectrum licensing considerations.
  • The ACMA requesting information from spectrum license holders to improve its understanding of existing spectrum utilisation.
  • The ACMA reviewing future expired spectrum licenses simultaneously rather than individually to ensure that the ESL process aligns with the public interest.
  • Measures to improve the ACMA’s understanding of the end users who rely on spectrum services.
