Almost 2 million TV signals in UK could be affected by LTE

The news that LTE could affect 2 million homes in the UK and their TV signals has come from Ofcom, the broadcasting regulator and the announcement was made by Ed Vaizey, the UK Culture minister.

Ofcom, as we all know, is looking into the launch of LTE in the UK, a long and drawn out process.

Signal amplifiers are used in about nine million UK homes and 5.46 million homes use the aerial system. As per Ofcom, LTE is expected to interfere with 945,000 and 953,000 homes with signal amplifiers and aerial systems respectively. This will cause fuzzy reception while watching TV.

But this number will significantly drop to 5,100 and 3,400 respectively once mobile networks raise up to £180 million that will pay for solutions to stop the signal failures. The solution, most likely, will be in the form of a filter that will be attached to the TV set. is the home of mobile bingo – our current favourite is mmmBingo.
