Note submitted by HTV Wales
During HTV's evidence to the Welsh Affairs Committee
at Gregynog Elfyn Llwyd MP requested a map to indicate Digital
Terrestrial Television (DTT) coverage in Wales.
In response to our request the ITC has produced
the enclosed map (not printed) to show the coverage predicted
for the Digital 3 & 4 services in Wales following the completion
of the transmitter roll-out. This is predicted to be complete
by the end of next year.
The ITC inform us that according to their latest
coverage review these areas correspond to a population of up to
1.9 million people in Wales, which is 66 per cent of the population.
It needs to be stressed that HTV has no involvement
in digital frequency planning and that the Broadcasting Act 1996
makes the ITC specifically responsible for establishing DTT in
7 January 1999
