Denmark - Regulation and Spectrum - History


DAB regulation is set by three different bodies in Denmark; The Ministry of Culture legislates for media politics and licences, the Ministry of Science sets the political framework for frequency applications and the National IT and Telecoms Agency maintains technical management of the frequency spectrum. Public broadcaster Denmark Radio (DR) runs one national multiplex and two regional multiplexes are run as one national multiplex by the commercial broadcasters. Two vacant 256 kbit/s slots on the commercial multiplex will be auctioned off in 2007. DR is able to use the free space on the commercial multiplex until the end of the 2007 calendar year.
