EU urged to convert TV, radio frequencies to mobile broadband

BRUSSELS -- The EU should convert a whole spectrum of television and radio frequencies for use by mobile broadband by around 2020 as smartphone use soars, a report said on Monday.

Former World Trade Organization chief Pascal Lamy's report on the changing face of the media said the 700 Mhz spectrum should be “repurposed” for wireless broadband.

But the report, commissioned by the EU in January, said “regulatory stability” should be ensured for broadcasting to continue its current use of the 470-694 Mhz band until 2030.
