Aus­tralia ranks fourth for cu­mu­la­tive DAB+ dig­i­tal ra­dio sales, with an im­pres­sive 4,444,000 units en­ter­ing the market since 2008, bol­stered by the 60% of new cars sold here which have DAB+ re­ceivers, and the 4800km of roads on which they can re­ceive sig­nals. But the fig­ures from World DAB show that our cov­er­age is not growing much — from 63% of the pop­u­la­tion in 2013, it has risen only to 65%, since it is lim­ited to five met­ro­pol­i­tan ar­eas. Nor­way re­mains the only coun­try to have turned off FM en­tirely, with the UK and Switzer­land both re­view­ing the pos­si­bil­ity.
