LTE operators to bear the cost of DTT interference

France’s mobile operators will bear the cost of any interference with DTT services, according to the 2012 budget bill presented on the 28th September, Les Echos reports. The additional spectrum to be auctioned for LTE services in December is in the 800MHz “digital dividend” frequency band, very close to the one used for DTT. The draft law states that “in case of interference, operators will take the necessary measures to enable the resumption of TV service reception by any appropriate means”.
