The actual 4G services will start very soon in these places:

Birmingham, Bradford, Brighton, Coventry, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Guildford, Leeds, Leicester, London, Manchester, Merseyside, Newbury, Newcastle upon Tyne, Nottingham, Paisley, Sheffield, Slough, St. Albans, York

At800, the people tasked with restoring Freeview to anyone who finds they have problems, have today launched a campaign to reach those people in the UK who are "offline" with a novel campaign to send a "tweet" by postcard for free.

First you have to follow @at800tv on Twitter. Click on the link and then click the "Follow" button.

If you know someone who lives in the places listed above, tweet a message for them using the #at800postbox hash tag (that means put #at800postbox in your twitter message).

At800 will then send you a direct message on Twitter to get the details of the recipients name and address, and that you agree to the terms and conditions.

You find direct messages on Twitter this way:

My granddad's lost all BBC channels - everything else is fine.

Will this be a result of 4G or another reason??

It's nothing to do with 4G, that has not started in your area yet.

Please can you advise if Hastings TN37 is currently being affected by 4G as I am trying to eliminate the reason for bad interference. I have received an at800 card in the post

Maz: Please can you read the telephone number on your at800 postcard and call them instead, because no one on here has access to the at800 4G database.

What if, like me & my father, you don't use "Twitter" & the like?

What use is a tweet postcard?

To much serious & important stuff is entrusted to social media & the internet.

Telephones work perfectly well.

W Gilroy:

As this is a "historical" page, it's not that relevant and as you haven't explained your problem we can't offer any advice other than -

If you think you need filters then contact At800 on 0808 13 13 800 (telephone number). They are the official organisation that deal with these things and will supply them free of charge if appropriate.
