MuxCo Suffolk wins DAB local radio multiplex

The licence for a new local radio multiplex for Suffolk has been awarded to MuxCo Suffolk Limited by Ofcom.

The multiplex will bring local digital radio services to Suffolk for the first time, and includes two brand new radio services from Town and Country Broadcasting and Lincs FM Group. Muxco intends to use three transmitters to cover 87% of the outdoor licensed area reaching 55.7% of adults with an adequate indoor signal. The service proposes to launch October 2015.

MuxCo Suffolk’s proposed line-up includes:

• Anglia – Rock and Pop Music by T&C
• BBC Radio Suffolk
• Heart – Contemporary Hit Radio from Global
• Smooth Radio – Easy Listening from Global
• Suffolk First – Contemporary and Country Music from Lincs FM

Ofcom invited applications to run the new local multiplex in March 2015 and MuxCo was the only applicant.
