Australia Identifies 850 MHz for Public-Safety Mobile Broadband Capability
Thursday, May 14, 2020 | Comments

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) proposed optimizing and allocating the 850 MHz expansion band and 900 MHz band, using a market-based process in the fourth quarter of 2021, to facilitate the efficient allocation and use of these bands.

One objective is to support a national public-safety mobile broadband (PSMB) capability. The 850 MHz expansion band has been identified as a possible candidate to support a future PSMB capability. The government is prepared to reserve spectrum for PSMB, subject to the outcomes of continued discussions with state and territory governments.

In December 2018, the Council of Australian Governments agreed to a strategic road map for a national PSMB network. In November 2018, Australia’s New South Wales (NSW) Telco Authority announced a request for proposals (RFP) for a proof of concept for a national PSMB capability.

All jurisdictions agreed to continue to work together to resolve supporting spectrum arrangements in parallel with proof-of-concept trials.
