The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has published the Final Radio Frequency Spectrum Assignment Plan (RSFAP) for the 470 to 694 MHz band. This sets out a phased approach to analogue television switch-off and eventual migration to Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) through a Single Frequency Network (SFN). The RSFAP will expedite implementation of DTT and concurrent release of the First Digital Dividend and the Second Digital Dividend Spectrum, supporting the uptake of mobile broadband communications.
