HomeInsightsOfcom publishes details of responses to its call for expressions of interest for small-scale DAB

Article by

Ofcom explains that small-scale DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) is an innovative technology designed to allow local stations to achieve affordable transmission on digital radio.

The update contains three maps and tables showing the locations where parties have expressed interest in running either a small-scale DAB multiplex or radio service, or both.

Ofcom says that the expressions of interest will help it to plan the spectrum for small-scale DAB by indicating the pattern of likely demand. It will consult on the detailed implementation of the small-scale DAB licensing framework and a spectrum plan next year, after the Government has put the necessary secondary legislation before Parliament.
