About DAB+ in Spain
Due to a general lack of interest from the main political forces and institutions in Spain's central government and autonomous communities, Spain has been relegated to almost the bottom of the league regarding the transition from analogue to digital Radio. In addition, the major media groups have passively frustrated this transition to limit competition within the sector, because the deployment of DAB+ would dilute their market dominance. Fortunately, several independent operators have taken the initiative to test DAB+ multiplex systems across key points within Spain, and many of these operators are collaborating with A.E.E.D. to incorporate the corresponding autonomous communities to collaborate with these pilot tests.
