Study on broadcast-broadband convergence and its impact on spectrum and network use published

Today the European Commission published the findings of a study by Plum and Farncombe on broadcast-broadband convergence. The report considers three questions:

  • How will audio-visual (AV) consumption in the European Union change over the next 15 years?
  • How will broadcast-broadband services develop in that period?
  • Is there merit in moving to a converged platform in which mobile and terrestrial TV broadcast services share common infrastructure and UHF spectrum?

The report can be accessed here.
