This report covers recent developments pertaining to mobile infrastructure in Australia. It provides a range of useful statistics from operators, as well as data from a number of surveys undertaken in 2014 and into 2015. The report includes progress with the build-out of LTE networks, supported by recent spectrum auctions and the availability of spectrum in the 700MHz band since January 2015. It also assesses the government’s plans to issue licences in the 1800MHz band to improve mobile services in rural and remote regions.

The report also covers mobile market revenue and assesses the competitive pressures affecting revenue growth among operators in coming years.
