Vanuatu launches spectrum consultation

27 Jun 2014

Vanuatu’s telecoms watchdog, the Telecommunications and Radiocommunications Regulator (TRR), has launched a public consultation regarding the allocation of spectrum for fixed telecoms services within the country. The document outlines suggested frequency bands for fixed microwave systems, and bands that should be set aside for the provision of universal satellite, mobile voice and broadband services.

Under the draft proposal, the TRR plans to allocate the 1500MHz and 5GHz-22GHz frequency bands for fixed microwave point-to-point services, while the 1800MHz, 1930MNHz-1980MHz/2110MHz-2170MHz, 2300MHz-2450MHz and 2500MHz-2690MHz frequency bands will be retained for future mobile broadband use. All interested parties are invited to submit their comments and proposals until 28 July 2014.
