Free support is available for people who may experience disruption to their TV signal because of the introduction of 4G mobile masts in Wisbech.
For some households the new masts could disrupt Freeview - TV received through an aerial.
This is because some 4G signals operate at 800 MHz, adjacent to the frequencies used by Freeview.
TVs and set-top boxes that receive Freeview can fail to block the 4G signals causing interference such as a loss of sound, blocky images or loss of some or all channels.
An organisation made up of the leading mobile phone operators, at800, will provide free assistance to households who experience disruption.

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