Lamy to head spectrum advisory group

Euro commissioner Neelie Kroes seems to want to force the discussion on spectrum management to a quick close in 6 months from now by appointing former commissioner (i.e. heavyweight) Pascal Lamy as the lead for the advisory group on UHF spectrum management. Seems Kroes wants to force the spectrum to be more open to non-TV applications. A message strongly opposed by specifically public broadcasters and some of the larger EC countries (Spain, Italy, and to a somewhat lesser extent France and UK) where DTT is still a major way of viewing TV.
