view story

http://techcrunch.com – After years of planning and step-by-step engineering, the U.K.’s switchover from analogue to digital-terrestrial TV broadcasts has finally been completed — marking the end of more than 70 years of analogue broadcasting in the U.K and opening the door for the launch of 4G mobile services in spectrum previously used by TV broadcasters. The digital switchover has been taking place gradually over the past five years, region by region — although Ofcom started work on planning back in April 2004. The last region to make the switch — today — was Northern Ireland. &#8220 (IT news)
