07.02.2012 - France France

This Monday, February 6, 2012, Rachid Arhab was the guest of Le Radio.

The CSA advisor, specializing in digital radio, announced that Eric Besson, the Minister for the digital economy had agreed in principle to an addition of the DAB + standard in the texts.

By cons, Frederic Mitterrand, the Minister of Culture and Communication has still not responded.

Once the ministerial agreements issued, it will also wait for Brussels speaking on the subject, which should not be a problem since the DAB + is adopted by all other European countries.

Rachid Arhab therefore contends that it "launch before the end of 2012 a call so that we would stop to ask whether the NTR can function"

This time, the launch of NTR would simultaneously over a large part of the territory and not in three regions.

SIRTI officials have asked once again that the CSA would not hold and now delivers the authorizations for the records he selected in 2009.

Everything will be fine unless ... there are some changes in the French political world in the coming months.

Anyway, Rachid Arhab welcomed the good article on this Monday morning RTNT published in Le Figaro
