Qualcomm to Take Mobile TV Overseas

Qualcomm_VCAST.jpgQualcomm said it has won 40MHz of wireless spectrum in the U.K. that would be ideal for mobile TV and broadband services, CNET News reports. This indicates that the company could be planning to build a new mobile TV network in Europe.

So far the company is keeping mum about what it will do with the spectrum, the report said, as a company spokesperson confirmed in an e-mail to CNET News, saying that they plan to use it only for testing products and services:

“Qualcomm considers that the L-band spectrum represents at this stage an opportunity to develop, test and explore a variety of emerging business models, innovative wireless services and technologies. However, we have not taken a decision on spectrum use.”
