Radio’s Three Digital Radio Standards

Which is the best digital radio standard? Why are there three main ITU recommended digital audio broadcasting standards, when in television there is one standard (DVB-T2) that is universally accepted?
Do we still need terrestrial broadcasting when IP can do so much and is so popular? And if we still need terrestrial, why isn't one radio standard emerging as the absolute winner? All valid questions with long and complicated answers lost in the midst of the 20th century.

  1. There isn't one standard for TV. There are at least three (the one the US uses, the one Japan uses, the one most other people use), and a DVB-T2 set bought in the UK will not work, without software modification, in Australia. (I'd know: I did that).
