MSP Review Discussion document for Consultation

Radio Spectrum Management (RSM) is conducting a review of the operation of the Managed Spectrum Park (MSP) and, in conjunction, is considering options for future allocation of spectrum in regional areas.

Focus areas for the Managed Spectrum Park review include:

  • Feasibility of co-operation
  • Allocation methods
  • Level of technical requirements/rules in relation to MSP licenses

Focus areas in relation to future regional/non-national allocation of spectrum include:

  • Feasibility of competition
  • Protection of regional rights for use by regional providers
  • Allocation methods
  • Implementation requirements

The deadline for public comments was 13 July 2021. A decision document will follow and we will be making recommendations later this year.
