ITU Region


ITU regions and the dividing lines between them.
  Region 1
  Region 2
  Region 3

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), in its International Radio Regulations, divides the world into three ITU regions for the purposes of managing the global radio spectrum. Each region has its own set of frequency allocations, the main reason for defining the regions.




The definition of the European Broadcasting Area uses some of the definitions of Region 1.
