London - Jan 31, 2012 - Switchdigital has contracted with the French company VDLto provide new transmission services for the London 2 DAB multiplex. The 12-year agreement will last the entire duration of its second license period. The contract will mark VDL's first move into the UK digital radio transmission market.

A new transmitter will be added at the BT Tower, which is expected to improve DAB user indoor reception of the stations sharing the multiplex in central London.
