The Australian Communnications & Media Authority has published its Five-year spectrum outlook 2020–24 (FYSO 2020–24), outlining its current and future spectrum management priorities.
The FYSO provides an overview of the technology, market and policy drivers likely to shape the demand for spectrum over the next five years, and includes our plans for addressing the expected rise in demand for 5G wireless broadband spectrum. It also sets out the ACMA’s annual work plan for band planning and optimisation, spectrum allocations, and ongoing improvements to spectrum management.
The ACMA continues to adopt a five-year planning horizon to track new or changed spectrum uses under consideration and development around the world.
In April this year, ACMA released a draft FYSO for industry feedback. All input was considered, and responses to submissions can be found in the Addendum to FYSO 2020–24.
