DAB might have higher bandwidth but a significant chunk of it is used for the FEC. More than 20KHz bandwidth is pointless and if you're over 30 then significantly lower than this due to hearing loss at high frequencies.

In practise many DAB stations, including music stations, reduce the bandwidth significantly, or have it reduced for them in order to cram more channels into the available spectrum.
