C39 (618.0MHz) after switchover
Wednesday 7 March 2012 9:04PM

I had a splitter/booster to take signal from living room to bedroom level.

When our apartment block aerials were checked by installers, they told me to remove the booster as it was unnecessary with the digital signals and would prevent reception.

That proved to be true. Try without the booster. If that does not work, you may need an additional cable from your aerial direct to 2nd TV.

My home receives Freeview signals from the Bluebell Hill transmitter. A 4G company (EE - which is supposed to be using the 1800 band) started up in the Medway area on May 29th. Since that date our Freeview reception has been almost completely knocked out. This is true for people some distance from me and my near neighbours as well. The 1800 band is not supposed to affect Freeview, but it appears it does. EE have not warned us, contacted us or offered filters. I am escalating a complaint to EE.

The start of EE 4G in Medway, on 29th May, was reported online in local newspapers.

Dave Lindsay - residents understand the situation concerning communal aerials and that a filter is fitted centrally if required. 'The party responsible' is already aware of the issues.

It is regrettable that you consider contact with EE is considered 'moaning.' I am sure you would be concerned if your own TV reception had been knocked out at the same time as 4G service had commenced in your area.
