OFCOM considers DAB+ for the UK

The UK communications regulator, OFCOM, is considering changes in the Digital Radio Technical Code, which could precipitate the introduction of the DAB+ standard.

The proposed new Digital 2 multiplex could therefore contain a mix of original DAB and DAB+ services. is also reporting that OFCOM has confirmed that it does not intend to impose minimum bit rates on radio stations in order to ensure a ‘certain level’ of sound quality. 

According to OFCOM: “There is no evidence to suggest dissatisfaction from consumers with the technical quality of content from platforms that are not subject to explicit technical quality standards requirements.”
