Derbyshire local DAB due April 2014

Arqiva has confirmed on Twitter that it is working to launch local DAB across Derbyshire in April 2014.

As reported here last month, the delay in setting up local DAB in the county recently hit the letters column of the local newspaper. Various timeframes were given over the past five years, but ongoing funding concerns within the radio industry stopped local DAB rollout in all parts of the country before resuming in 2012. Derbyshire is the last part of Central England to get a local DAB service of its own.

In December, Arqiva confirmed that the remaining local DAB multiplexes that were licenced, but not on-air would launch within 24 months, following an announcement by Communications Minister Ed Vaizey on the future expansion of DAB digital radio.
