ICASA plans to introduce digital radio broadcasting but keep analogue stations for time being

Tuesday 9 April 2019 | 12:57 CET | News
The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has finalised the process for developing a Findings Document and Position Paper on Digital Sound Broadcasting (DSB), following an inquiry into the use of DSB in the country. To reach its findings and positions, ICASA relied on extensive submissions from interested stakeholders, desktop research into the proposed Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB+) and Digital Radio Mondial (DRM), digital sound broadcast trials conducted by broadcasting service licensees, as well as study visits to Australia, Germany, Norway, the US and UK.
