Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) continues to enjoy widespread popularity and to stand out as a reliable source of impartial, high-quality information, making it irreplaceable in today’s era of misinformation and economic hardship.

As the organisation representing Europe’s terrestrial network operators internationally, we strongly advocate for the retention of the current allocation of the 470-694 MHz band fosters valuable services including public service broadcasting and PMSE across Region 1.

No change for the UHF band at WRC-23 is crucial to ensuring the continued success of essential broadcasting services and co-primary would negatively impact these services and public policy objectives without clear demonstrated benefits. We therefore support a position of ‘No Change’ to the Radio Regulations under WRC-23 agenda item 1.5.
