4G rollout begins – small possibility of Freeview interference

Posted June 19, 2013 - Service Updates

From Summer 2013, mobile phone operators are rolling out new fourth-generation (4G) networks to provide customers with high speed wireless broadband. Where these services are broadcast on certain airwaves (the 800MHz band), they may interfere with Freeview reception.* A new company, at800, has been set up by the mobile operators to provide filters and other assistance to households where TV reception may be affected.

Viewers will receive a postcard from at800 if they are predicted to be in an area that may experience interference.

For more information, visit at800 or call them on 0333 31 31 800
(Freephone 0808 13 13 800).

*Existing 4G services from EE do not affect Freeview services as these operate in a different band.
