ComReg consults on Digital Dividend

The Commission for Communications Regulation (ComReg) has published a
consultation document on Ireland’s digital dividend.
The dividend will become available when the switchover from analogue to digital terrestrial television technology takes place before 2012.
The consultation focuses on a number of key issues which include the following;
•The option of clearing the 800 MHz sub-band to accommodate uses other than broadcasting and providing access to it in a timely manner.
•Exploring opportunities for sub-bands other than the 800 MHz sub-band as part of Ireland’s digital dividend
•Considering whether some of the digital dividend could be set aside as an innovation reserve.
Responses must be received by the 7th May.
The full consultation document on the digital dividend, ComReg 09/15 is available in the publications section of the ComReg website
