EU starts public consultation on the Lamy Report: the future use of the UHF TV broadcasting band

The European Commission is collecting views on the Lamy Report's strategic recommendations on a long-term policy strategy for the future use of the UHF band (470-790 MHz). It wishes to take a position on how these recommendations should be followed up.

The Consultation will be open from 12/01/2015 to 12/04/2015. For more details follow this link.

The report by the High Level Group Chairman, Mr Pascal Lamy. discusses how the scarce spectrum resource in the UHF broadcasting band should be used in future.

In preparing to design a long-term strategy for the future use of the UHF band, the Commission will take the following into account:

  • the Lamy Report
  • input from the Radio Spectrum Policy Group
  • Commission studies
  • and the responses to this consultation.
Any changes in the way the UHF broadcasting band is used would affect the scope and quality of broadcasting and mobile services. They could imply future upgrades of equipment such as TV sets. There are specific questions about how these issues would affect citizens.
