Help over possible TV disruption as 4G is launched


Households in Boston are being warned of possible disruption to their Freeview receptions as new 4G mobile broadband services launch in the area.

This is because some 4G signals operate at 800 MHz, adjacent to the frequencies used by Freeview.

Help is at hand, however, from the independent organisation at800.

Its role is to make sure viewers can still watch Freeview or are offered a suitable alternative as 4G at 800 MHz services go live - at no cost to viewers.

Ben Roome, CEO of at800 said: “New 4G mobile masts are bringing mobile broadband to Boston, but they do have the potential to disrupt TV reception for some households.

“We’re already helping viewers in the area and continue to offer support.

“We want to ensure that people know it’s our role to fix any disruption to Freeview due to 4G at 800 MHz and that there’s no charge for our support.”

With more 4G masts due to go live soon, any viewers who experience new disruption to Freeview should call at800 on 0333 31 31 800/0808 13 13 800 or visit the website
