Four Asean countries agreed on using TV spectrum for 4G services

Singapore, Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia and Malaysia have agreed to set aside TV broadcasting airwaves for mobile broadband use.

The alignment of TV spectrum for mobile broadband use will allow for roaming when travelling from one country to another.

The announcement was made by the Minister for Communications and Information of Singapore, Yaacob Ibrahim at the opening of the week-long Infocomm Media Business Exchange 2013 (imbX) event, The Straits Times reports.

TV spectrum is expected to be freed up completely by 2020 when analogue TV broadcasts are switched off.
