According to a study commissioned by the U.K.’s Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), and executed by Analysys Mason, the economic value of spectrum use in country was $83 billion in 2011, an increase of 25 percent in real terms since 2006, the last time a similar study was undertaken. The study also shows mobile services accounting for nearly 60 percent of this value, while broadcasting accounts for a further 20 percent. Other sectors considered include the use of Wi-Fi as a substitute for mobile broadband, microwave links, satellite links and private mobile radio. And now that digital switchover is completed, the study suggests further consideration should be given on when and how the digital terrestrial TV platform can be upgraded to deliver more HD content, while network improvements could also be made to digital audio broadcasting (DAB) radio platforms.
