Progress update on DTT migration to below the 700 MHz band: International coordination of Ireland's DTT spectrum plan
Launch date:31 March 2017
Modified at:16 July 2021
The 694 - 790 MHz radio spectrum band ("700 MHz band") has long been used to provide Digital Terrestrial Television ("DTT") services, in Ireland and internationally. In 2012, the International Telecommunication Union (“ITU”) decided that, in addition to being used to provide DTT services, the 700 MHz band may also be used to provide mobile services in “Region 1” (Europe, Africa and the Middle East). The ongoing provision of DTT services will be provided for below the 700 MHz band, in the 470 – 694 MHz band.
