Gap fillers speed switchover

The National Communications Commission (NCC) began installing gap fillers for DTT signals last year and will roll out fifty of these gap fillers nationwide, the Taipei Times reports. Once the gap filler project is completed, digital signal coverage for the country’s 369 townships will hit 98 %.
The NCC has also distributed 1,000 free set-top boxes to low-income households and plans to distribute some 84,000 more set-top boxes this year.
Recently it was announced that Taiwan plans to switch off analogue TV signals completely on the 30 June 2012, six months ahead of schedule.
