NBN Co buys Austar wireless spectrum for $120m

NBN Co will spend $120 million buying spectrum licences owned by Austar for
fixed-wireless services to 4 percent of the
population.

Construction of the fixed wireless network was expected to begin in December.

"The $120 million payment comprises $58 million for the subsidiary that holds
the spectrum licenses with a further $62
million for the assignment of this subsidiary's debt," NBN Co said in a
statement.

The spectrum licences covered the 2.3 GHz and 3.4 GHz bands.

How much dedicated bandwidth did NBNCo just purchase?

If allocated on the same basis (LOL) as the fibre, 16Mbps at 10%
utilisation by 4% of the population (which is about 200,000 homes) then
they need around 320Gbps.

How many satellites are they planning to launch?

I've not seen the licences, but from memory they were running 14
conse3cutive 7mhz-wide analogue TV channels, so atleast 100Mhz.

Austar was using those frequencies for terrestrial broadcasting.
So, probably none.
