Responding to EU Telecoms Commissioner Viviane Reding’s statements at the CeBIT
trade fair in Hannover and last month’s EICTA
General Assembly, the UMTS Forum – through its Joint UMTS Forum and GSM
Association Mobile TV Group – has offered a series of Recommendations to the EC
for the rollout of Mobile TV across the European Union.
Speaking at the occasion of the Conference Preparatory Meeting (CPM-07) of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) this week, UMTS Forum Chairman Jean-Pierre Bienaimé stressed the importance of identifying sufficient harmonised spectrum globally to support future high data rate mobile broadband services.
