[holding answer 24 July 2007]: At the time of switchover (which will be in 2010 for the STV region) digital terrestrial coverage across the whole of the UK should substantially match that which the present analogue service achieves—that is, 98.5 per cent. of households. Although we do not have information on coverage for individual constituencies, Ofcom estimates that around 97 per cent. of households in the STV North region and around 99.4 per cent. in STV Central region will be capable of receiving a high quality and robust signal after digital switchover. Unfortunately, estimates of analogue coverage are not available.
