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