The digitalisation process in Serbia should end in mid-2014, which is almost a year ahead of the deadline Serbia agreed to, Serbian Minister of Telecommunications Rasim Ljajic stated late on Thursday.
The minister said that the meeting to define the digitalisation dynamics was held on Thursday and that 60 percent of Serbia should be covered by the digital signal until October 1, while another 20 percent of coverage would be ensured by the end of the year.
This means that coverage of 80 percent would be completed by the end of the year and during the winter, preparations will be carried out for completion of the tender, public procurement and equipment for new locations. The digitalisation process should be completed fully in mid-2014, almost a year ahead of the deadline Serbia took on, which is July 17, 2015, Ljajic told the Belgrade-based Television Pink.
In addition to several programmes, citizens will have the possibility to use new services and internet coverage will increase, so that internet will be available in rural parts of the country as well, Ljajic said.
