In recent years Mobile Broadband Systems have experienced extraordinary improvement which results in increasingly high requirement for radio frequency spectrum. The 800 MHz frequency is well recognised as one of the essential spectrum resources with perfect radio transmission characteristics.
In accordance with the NICT Act 2009, it is NICTA’s mandate to develop Radio spectrum plans including frequency band plans in PNG. All band plans are developed in accordance with recommendations developed by the ITU Radiocommunications sector (ITU-R).
In the interest of PNG particularly the ICT sector, NICTA is conducting this consultation on the ‘Draft 800 MHz Band Plan’. NICTA will finalize the plan taking into account feedback from this process.
NICTA welcomes feedback from the operators, stakeholders and general public taking into account the following;
- Radio Spectrum Plan
- Channeling Plan and
- Principle of Assignment
