Could 4G be an issue?
During 2013, some of the frequencies that were used for television before the Digital Switchover will be auctioned off and used to provide 4th generation (4G) mobile broadband.
Knowing in advance who will be affected is a complicated matter. Until we know where the 4G masts will be, there is no way of knowing who will be affected.
4g is estimated to start in May/June and so the best advice is to wait and see if you get any problems.
People who are most likely to be a affected are:
If you live near a mobile phone/4G mast
If the mast is in the direct line of sight of the aerial
If poor quality amplifiers or cable has been used in your aerial installation
The good news is that because we do not live in an overly populated area (Royal Forest of Dean we shouldn't be too affected.
