Radio Frequency Spectrum Assignment Plan for the Bands 825 - 830 MHz and 870 - 875 MHz

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) publishes the finalized radio frequency spectrum assignment plan, which sets the rules for services operating in the frequency band from 825 – 830 MHz and 870 – 875 MHz.

The Radio Frequency Spectrum Assignment Plan (RFSAP) includes technical characteristics of radio systems, frequency channelling, and details on required migration of existing users of the band.

The channel arrangement for frequency band 825-830 MHz paired with 870-875 MHz is as shown:

The use of the band is limited for IMT-services. International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT) systems are mobile systems that provide access to a wide range of telecommunication services, such as advanced mobile services supported by mobile and fixed networks.

This RFSAP is effective as of March 29, 2019.
