Cyfrowa Polska proposed for digital transition

Anna Strezynska, the president of the country’s Office of Electronic Communication (UKE) has called for the creation of a body like Digital UK to help the country push ahead with its analogue switch off in 2012 rather than 2014.
The body has already been given the name Cyfrowa Polska (‘Digital Poland’).
Consultation on the proposed is already underway (October 21st) and will last around a month. It will be followed by talks with the National Broadcasting Council (KRRiT), after which a proposal will be submitted to the government.
Reports also suggest that the UKE and KRRiT are working closely together to ensure that a tender for Poland’s second DTT multiplex can be announced by the end of this month.
