What are filters and how are they fitted?
at800 domestic/household filters are small boxes which block 4G at 800 MHz mobile signals and in most cases enable you to carry on receiving watching Freeview as normal – we provide them free of charge. Each filter is smaller than a pack of cards and needs no batteries or external power supply. It will normally plug into the lead between the TV and the aerial. If you have a TV signal amplifier or booster, the filter must be fitted between the aerial and amplifier. We have tested each type of at800 filter to ensure it works correctly in the UK.
