TV 'white space' technology compatible with DTT - Subtel

Wednesday 10 November 2021 | 14:24 CET | News
Chile's telecommunications regulator Subtel said a report conducted for the watchdog by the University of Chile proved the compatibility of TV 'white space' radio spectrum with the country's DTT signal. The various tests carried out under controlled conditions by the university successfully demonstrated that TV 'white space' technology can coexist with the digital TV ecosystem in Chile, allowing unused channels to be used in the future to connect underserved areas, said Subtel.
