Spain to decide on DTT future by 30 June

Friday 22 June 2018 | 11:01 CET | News
Spain's communications regulator CNMC has published a wide-ranging report on the reallocation of 700MHz band, warning that DTT operators are set to lose 30 percent of their current capacity under the second digital dividend if spectrum efficiency isn't improved. The release of spectrum in the 700MHz, 1.5GHz, 2.6GHz and 3.6-3.8GHz bands is part of the government's 5G National Plan, with reallocation of the 700MHz band set to affect the new HD and UHD services offered by DTT operators.
