Regulator publishes proposal for mobile TV licence

On the 30th March the communications regulator ComReg issued an Information Notice on the future award of a mobile television licence. The notice gives details of the proposed issue of one 8 MHz channel in the range 470-750 MHz, on an exact frequency which is still to be decided and concerns the provision of mobile TV services in the areas of Cork, Dublin, Galway, Limerick, and Waterford.
Prospective candidates are expected to be able to tender for the single licence in the fourth quarter of the year with a final announcement of the tender winner by the end of the year.
Comments on ComReg’s mobile television license proposal can be made until 5.00pm on the 30 April 2010.
