I not a fan of the removal of DAB Regional such as Severn Estuary (South Wales & W of England) Mux in favor of such as extra local Muxs so likes of Heart and Capital can clog the airwaves with only about 5 hours of local content for Breakfast and Afternoon Rush Hour.
The lost of these regional DAB Multiplexes have resulted in less choice as these regional frequencies used to be over a further area!
Unless if you live in London or the Central Scotland (Glasgow and Edinburgh covered). London has at least 3 local frequencies, Central Scotland will continue to maintain past 2015 its regional frequency elsewhere regional frequencies have closed or closing. Elsewhere including Cardiff, the West Mids and everywhere else you only entitled to one VHF band frequency such as "Cardiff and Newport" Local Mux

These 20 cities are more than what O2 and Vodafone has publicised for launch and estimations by the end of the year!
Both Networks have commited to Leeds and London for launch day with a few extra.
This suggests O2 and Vodafone may hoping to launch in more areas before 1 October!
Notble exceptions for 4G 800 Cardiff, Bristol and Belfast not like EE 4G 1800 treatment as being amongst the launch city list!.
Three and EE 4G on 800 are behind Vodafone and O2 who playing catch up. Three by October from EE will be given a batch of 1800 spectrum!
