Notification of applications for Managed Spectrum Park (MSP) licences

Applications for New Licences in the Managed Spectrum Park are now on hold

1 June 2021

RSM is conducting a review of the operation of the Managed Spectrum Park (MSP) and is also considering options for future allocation of spectrum in regional areas. Interested parties are invited to respond to our Consultation Paper. This paper sets out a number of focus areas for both the MSP review and also regional / non-national allocation considerations, including some potential options for management / improvement within these areas.

The consultation period will take several months. RSM is placing a hold on applications for new MSP licences whilst this takes place. We anticipate that the MSP will be opened again for licencing in the fourth Quarter of 2021.

Open application rounds (i.e. Notices 66 and 67) will continue to run under the existing MSP rules.

Below is a list of applications received and notified by Radio Spectrum Management for counter applications, as part of the formal requirements of notification for the MSP licence application process.
