4G test signals areas listed by the BBC

The two locations in the West Midlands, Cradley Heath and Rowley Regis, will shortly be experiencing the test 4G at 800MHz signals to see if they interfere with Freeview and cable TV.

published on UK Free TV

BBC News (see BBC News - Organisation launches to help combat 4G interference ) has provided the location to the public where the 4G at 800MHz test signals will be provided.

Locations of Cradley Heath and Rowley Regis.

To save you looking on Ofcom's Sitefinder ('Sitefinder' Mobile Phone Base Station Database) I have reproduced the locations of mobile phone masts in the two locations:

Cradley Heath

Rowley Regis

Each location lists the mobile phone operator: O2, T is T-Mobile (now part of EE), Or is Orange (also EE), V is Vodafone, NR is Network Rail, 3 is 3.

The second number is the frequency range used, 900MHz, 2100MHz etc.

It is expected that 4G 800 will operate from existing "900MHz" locations.

I live in BH21 1DW postcode and receive Freeview from Rowridge. The map shows maintenance and repair work to be in progress but how long can we expect this to continue as our reception here is, at times, very poor and the picture breaks up repeatedly. Can anyone throw any light on this? I would appreciate it.
