France - Coverage - History

08.03.2013

The network operator (TDF) produced comprehensive coverage plans in 2009 ready for the start of national and regional services. One of the benefits of digital radio to French listeners, as pointed out by the CSA, is that it will allow greater coverage and more stations in many areas. This is important to the CSA and to Radio France who have a remit to provide the best possible service including coverage to the widest possible audience .In Lyon TDF has broadcast a mix DAB+/DMB multiplex since 2008 with 10 to 12 radio stations. VDL also has two multiplexes covering 85% of the population and some of the major highways. Details of coverage and coverage maps can be obtained from the project leaders, VDL and TDF. Trial services are also on-air in Nantes expanding the coverage to such a level that if these services were to be granted full licenses it would mean the French law relating to mandatory inclusion of digital radio in all products once coverage reaches 20% of the population would be triggered.
