The Government wanted it to be the year of 2015 but it could be this year or 2025 as there is no firm date anywhere on this subject. It depends on so many factors such as DAB radio take up.

Manufactures have only just started putting DAB radios into cars.

It has also been said that when they switch off the FM AM Signal they may as well switch of the DAB as well. This is because of the coverage of the new 4G Service. The Service providers may put Digital radio on the 4G phone service free of charge, so you could end up using your Phone as your Digital Radio. Well, who carries a camera around with them any more!

All I can say is time will tell!
