Future Digital Norfolk plans to bring several new radio broadcast radio services to the Norwich area, operating on DAB digital radio. Ofcom, the UK broadcast radio regulator is currently looking into the possibility of adding a new tier of smaller-scale DAB services to the British radio scene. Future Digital Norfolk has applied to operate one of these experimental licences and if successful plans to begin broadcasting over the summer. Initial experimental licenses are currently slated to run for nine months. Ofcom will evaluate the experiment and then decide on how to proceed with possible further licensing.
