FAQ EN What does the 700MHz band refarming mean?

Refarming means the necessity to move terrestrial television multiplexes from the 694-790 MHz frequency to the lower range of 470-694 MHz. This is related to the requirement imposed on the European Union countries to release the 700 MHz band for the needs of mobile operators (5G services), as well as in connection with the transition to the DVB-T2 / HEVC transmission standard, announced for 2022. The changes are in line with the ordinance of the President of the Office of Electronic Communications of 17 January 2020 on the frequency management plan for the 470-790 MHz band.
