I find it quite unacceptable that legitimate Freeview viewers who have paid for their TV licence should be inconvenienced in this way. Surely both Ofcom and the BBC have a statutory duty to ensure that this part of the spectrum does not suffer from unwanted interference. The spectrum auction has raised a very considerable amount of money which should be used to solve the problem.

My partner today received a postcard from Digital Mobile Spectrum Limited advising her that our Freeview TV service may soon be subjected to 4G interference.

I find it quite unacceptable that legitimate television viewers, who have paid for their licence fee in full, should be inconvenienced in this way. Surely both Ofcom and the BBC have a statutory duty to ensure that this part of the spectrum that is reserved for public broadcasting remains free from unwanted interference.

The recent spectrum auction raised a considerable amount of money that should be used to solve the problem without the need to install filters in millions of homes across the UK. Given the current advice about probable signal overloading at mastheads, the issue also raises huge safety concerns about potentially excessive power levels that are required to service the new 4G networks. Grateful if you could advise whether a full risk assessment has been conducted and, if so, where this can be viewed by members of the public.

Please can someone advise why contact was made with my partner who does not hold a tv licence and is ex-directory rather than the listed licence holder at my address.

Thank you
