As the trade organisation for terrestrial broadcast network operators for TV and radio in Europe, BNE welcomed the opportunity to respond to the public consultation. It remains fully committed to the common European strategy on the UHF band agreed in 2017 : opening the 700 MHz band for mobile and confirming the allocation of 470-694 MHz to broadcasting as a primary service until at least 2030. This is also consistent with the long-term strategy defined by the RSPG, which earmarks the band for European audiovisual distribution services beyond 2030 and gives 20 European countries the long term regulatory visibility they require.
