In May 2023, more than 100 cultural and media organizations call on decision makers, governments and regulators to protect production and distribution via the lower UHF spectrum band (470 -694 MHz).

The Wider Spectrum Group is part of this initiative and many of its members also participate directly.

At the World Radiocommunication Conference in the autumn of 2023, there is a risk of transferring this frequency band to mobile broadband services.

This so-called “co-primary” allocation will result in a de facto exclusion of the media and the cultural sector from the airwaves.
