In December 2018, ACMA auctioned 125 MHz of spectrum in the 3.6 GHz band for 5G services.

The auction saw spectrum in the 3.6 GHz band purchased by Telstra, Optus, Mobile JV (a joint venture between TPG and Vodafone Hutchison Australia) and Dense Air. This band has been internationally recognised as a pioneer band for 5G services.

All of the available spectrum sold for a total amount of nearly $853 million.
