Policy and Licensing Procedures for the Auction of Spectrum Licences in the 2300 MHz and 3500 MHz Bands – Appendix 1

Appendix 1 – Gazette Notices DGTP-006-03 and DGTP-002-03

In the Department's official release, Restructuring the Spectrum in the Band 3400–3650 MHz to More Effectively Accommodate Fixed and Radiolocation Services, DGTP-002-03, February 2003, the FWA spectrum was realigned to 3500–3650 MHz from the original 3400–3550 MHz. With the exception of select geographic operational restrictions, particularly on the West Coast, all policy provisions were carried over to the new band. Subsequently, in April 2003, the Department released an Expansion of Spectrum for Fixed Wireless Access in the 3500 MHz Range, DGTP-006-03. This document prescribed new restrictions based on studies carried out by the Department and extended the core FWA spectrum, by one 25 MHz block, to 3475–3650 MHz.

The Gazette Notices announcing these changes are below.
