The gloves are off on DTT spectrum management and white spaces in the UK. White spaces technology uses locally available UHF frequencies for other than DTT applications, e.g. a local broadband connectivity. The problem is that it is very difficult to set good parameters on “available frequency”.
The present statement seem very unnuanced; i.e. things may be coming to a close; and this being Digital UKs (terrestrial broadcasters) way of improving their position against OFCOM (the regulator) that is promoting white spaces technology as a way to further use available spctrum efficiently.
