Spain’s Ministry of Industry has put back by one month the changes to Spanish TV that would see the freeing up of the 700 MHz band. This band has been allocayed for 4G/LTE networks.
El Economista reports that this new delay follows requests by both TV broadcasters and aerial installers (Fenitel).
Reports suggest that about 2.5 million Spanish households have still to retune their receivers, or if they using commula aerial system,have their systems upgraded.
It is estimated that by March 81% of homes will have retuned – 26 percentage points more than in January but still some way short of the 100% target.
The DTT switch was initially scheduled to take place at the beginning of the year but was then put back until the middle of this month.
