RSM suspends fourth round of 3.5 GHz spectrum allocation pending band re-planning

RSM has recently established a technical working group for the re-planning of the 3.5 GHz band. 

The working group will engage in consultation with incumbents of the 3.5 GHz band and aims to explore re-planning options which could result in increased use of the band.

The fourth round of allocation of spectrum at 3.5 GHz for broadband wireless access has been suspended pending the outcome of this band re-planning process.  This suspension does not impact on allocation processes that were notified prior to 5 July 2016.
