Fee Density Areas

The ACMA determines the licence fee for your transmitter by identifying where the site is in relation to four “density areas”: high, medium, low or remote. The areas are defined on the basis of spectrum demand and population density.

Understandably, the licence fees for a High-Density Area are usually higher, but licence fees are also affected by other details like transmitter power and channel bandwidth.

The ACMA has made available the current spatial boundaries for spectrum density areas in a format suitable for use in geographical information system (GIS) software— Shapefile (ZIP), Placemark (KMZ).
