If it is now law, how come there is no Media Release from the ACMA.

It is my understanding that it does not become Law until such time as it is Signed by the Minister and Gazetted, and as it was only Tabled in Parliament yesterday, it might be a couple of days yet.

Some further reading.

As you said - probably only a matter of time -- considering space in the 400 bracket is already at a premium

OK.

Seems it was gazetted in the Commonwealth of Australia Gazette No.S 82, 19 May 2011

which is also tacked on the end of Gazette - Government Notices 20 (GN 20) 25 May 2011.
