As part of the licence agreement, Swisscom Broadcast will set up a DVB-H network that will be available to all mobile telecom operators, including Swisscom, Orange, and Sunrise.
A further licence requirement is that DVB-H services must be made available to 44% of the population, including coverage in the cities of Basle, Bern, Geneva and Zurich, all by the end of May 2008.
By 2012, 60% of the population must be able to access DVB-H services.
