Mobile phone operators are now rolling out 4G networks across many UK towns and cities to provide super-fast wireless broadband in the coming weeks and months.
at800 is the organisation tasked with ensuring viewers continue to receive Freeview when 4G mobile services at 800 MHz are launched. It is sending postcards to households and businesses telling them about the forthcoming mast activation in:
- North Hampshire
- The M4 / M40 corridors
At800 cannot predict whether Freeview will definitely be disrupted, only that 4G at 800 MHz masts are being activated in certain areas over the coming weeks and months and could disrupt Freeview. Viewers are being advised that there is a small chance that they may experience some disruption to television reception when masts go live. However, in those few cases, it can be resolved by fitting an individual or communal filter, which will be provided for free by at800.
