DMSL appoints new Chair


Digital Mobile Spectrum Limited (DMSL), the company responsible for providing support to viewers affected by mobile network interference to Freeview, has appointed a new chairman.

David Meyer has been appointed to its board as a non-executive director and chair. The company provides information and help to viewers of terrestrial television should mobile networks operating at 800MHz cause disruption to their service, under the trading name "at800". The company is also currently helping support the clearance of TV from 700MHz spectrum.

DMSL is a joint venture of the UK mobile network operators. Meyer’s appointment follows the death of the previous chair, Andrew Pinder CBE.

David Meyer said:
“I look forward to supporting and helping guide DMSL. Andrew created a unique organisation that delivers vital support to TV viewers. I seek to help DMSL develop, and to continue its major contribution to making the best and most efficient use of UK spectrum. I’ve no doubt the strong team in the company will also continue to ensure the least amount of disruption to existing users.”

DMSL CEO, Ben Roome, said, 
“David brings in-depth knowledge and significant leadership experience of working with stakeholders in UK spectrum. All of us at DMSL are excited by David’s appointment and look forward to supporting him in his new role.”

Meyer has been chair of the UK Spectrum Policy Forum since 2015, and is chair of the Ofcom Spectrum Advisory Board, a position he has held since 2011.
