UK 4G interference test planned for Brighton

UK mobile spectrum organisation at800 is due to launch a trial in Brighton to determine to what extent 4G mobile services at 800 MHz may disrupt digital terrestrial service Freeview. 

The trial, which is due to start in mid-May, follows recent similar tests in London and the West Midlands, and is designed to make sure people continue to receive free-to-air TV when 4G mobile services operating at 800 MHz launch.

“The hilly terrain in Brighton – which can affect TV signals – coupled with Freeview being transmitted on frequencies very close to 4G at 800 MHz will make this a very useful trial. We urge viewers in Brighton to call us should they see any new problems with their Freeview reception,” said Simon Beresford-Wylie, chief executive of at800.
