Default Will the HD broadcast frame rate be the same worldwide?

In the past with standard definition TV, the two predominant broadcasting systems, PAL and NTSC, had not only different vertical line resolutions but also different frame rates, namely 25 fps for PAL and 30 fps for NTSC (both interlaced).

For HD broadcasting, there are now two standard worldwide vertical line resolutions, i.e. 720 and 1080. But is there a single agreed standard worldwide frame rate for HD broadcasting and, if so, what is it? Or will HD retain the different frame rates (albeit now progressive rather than interlaced) that we have always had for SD in the PAL and NTSC areas of the world?

Nope. Europ is sticking to 50hz and 1080i50 is part of the BD spec.
