Why did you run pilots? When did they happen?
We ran pilots throughout April and May 2013. These were important to help us understand the extent to which 4G at 800 MHz may disrupt Freeview services; and to evaluate the best way to communicate this issue.
We also tested whether viewers are able to fit the at800 filters. This ensured that when 4G at 800 MHz started to roll out, we were fully prepared to provide the best help, advice and service possible.
How can we improve this post?

- I am missing some Freeview channels. Is this caused by 4G?
- Will 4G affect TV received through satellite or cable?
- Will TVs in caravans, campers and narrowboats be affected?
- Will I see interference on devices such as 4G handsets, radio, tablets and computers?
- Where can I find more information on which areas have 4G coverage?
- Is it true that millions of homes might be impacted?
- I live in London, will I be affected?
- How will at800 let me know if my Freeview may be affected?
