Radio Spectrum : Commission proposes advancing the single market for radio spectrum use

(29/09/2005) The European Commission presented on 29 September a new EU strategy for an optimal use of radio spectrum in Europe. Radio spectrum is a critical input for many sectors relying on wireless transmission such as broadcasting, transport systems and mobile telephony.

How we manage this essential resource in Europe has a significant impact on consumer choices, growth and innovation potential. The proposed EU strategy aims to lower the barriers to access radio resources and to take advantage of the synergies resulting from a common European approach.
