Cape Verde is on track to clear its “digital dividend” spectrum by the end of June.
TeleGeography reports that Cape Verde’s national analogue-to-DTT migration programme began in August 2020, on the archipelago’s largest and most populous island of Santiago. By Q4 2020, 95% of the country’s population had access to DTT.
The final island to see its analogue TV shut down is the westernmost, Santo Antão. Culture & Creative Industries Minister Abraão Vicente told local outlet Inforpress that the island’s switch-off was scheduled for May 2021 but this has been delayed slightly due to the pandemic.
