Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Rowridge transmitter area
They are entirely legitimate and were set up under the authority of an agency run on behalf of the UK Government. They have been mentioned several times on several of the pages on this website in answer to posts about possible 4G signals causing problems. Take a look at at800 | 4G & Freeview | 4G interference | 4G Filters | 800 MHz and you will see that at800 are responsible for helping TV viewers and others who do or may suffer from intereference due to the changed usage of the frequency spectrum from around 800 MHz and above that was used for TV services on Channels 60-69. These are now allocated for use as 4G services. But as some TV transmitters broadcast digital TV signals up to channel 60 then some viewers may suffer interference if and/or when a new 4G service is started.
That you have received their card suggests that there may well be plans for a new 4G service in your area and that may affect your Freeview TV reception. If that is the case, as seems likely, you should accept the offer from them aof a free 4G filter to insert in your aerial cable. The best way is to buy another coaxial flylead, they are cheap, and fitting that into the back of the TV where the aerial feed is currwently and connect the other end to the filter outlet. The current aerial cable being fitted to the filter input socket. That makes sure that the weight of the filter does not damage your TV set's input socket.

Good to know that not all stuff pushed trough the letterbox is total spam. But I'm in a rented house and moving out soon, so it's a bit irrelevant.
It's a bit odd, as Salisbury's not on the at800 website (which I found later) as anywhere near the 800 MHz 4G transmission, which seems to be in major urban areas, mostly in the south-east (what a surprise).

Peter Toye: at800 are know to be fairly cautious - a couple of years back I got a card, even though the possibility of having a problem was very remote. So its more an automatic thing, just in case. However, if people do have a problem, they can always get a filter free.
