|Have you authorised (or plan to authorise in 2012) for use ("licensing") of the digital dividend (800 MHz band) for wireless broadband communication??||No||According to the law 4046/2012 Appendix V_2 Paragraph 4.2 (page 765), the target date for analogue switch off is 30/6/2013. This milestone may be changed. According to the Article 6 paragraph 4 of the DECISION No 243/2012/EU OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL of 14 March 2012, establishing a multiannual radio spectrum policy programme: «By 1 January 2013, Member States shall carry out the authorisation process in order to allow the use of the 800 MHz band for electronic communications services. The Commission shall grant specific derogations until 31 December 2015 for Member States in which exceptional national or local circumstances or cross-border frequency coordination problems would prevent the availability of the band, acting upon a duly substantiated application from the Member State concerned….» A request has been made to RSPP by the Greek Administration regarding deadline extension of the analogue switch (derogation). The framework and process regarding DTT licensing will influence the availability of Digital Dividend frequencies.|
