The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has opened a public consultation on the Draft Five-Year Spectrum Outlook (FYSO) 2022-2027.
The focus areas of the draft FYSO include:
Continuing implementation of planning outcomes for mid-band spectrum in the 3.4-4.0 GHz band to support deployment of 5G services in Australia.
Gauging interest in potential uses and support for regulatory arrangements in the terahertz spectrum bands (100 GHz to 3 THz), considered the next frontier of lightly used spectrum.
Discussing whether current regulatory arrangements for non-geostationary satellite orbit constellations are adequate, given the strong global and domestic interest in deployments.
Undertaking a program of legislative instrument review, with over 30 radiocommunications instruments scheduled to sunset on April 1, 2023.
The consultation may be accessed here and will be open for comments until April 29, 2022.
