spectrum for provision of mobile/wireless fixed services.
Notable in the category of Spectrum Under Reserve is Channel 11C (219.584 – 221.120 MHz) which was previousy used for Digital Audio Broadcasting services. According to OFCA, Channel 11A to 11D (216 – 223 MHz) may be used for new digital broadcasting and telecommunications services, including broadcast-type mobile TV services. The spectrum band 1466 – 1480 MHz has also been set aside for the same purpose. Other frequencies in this category include relinquished 3G spectrum.
