What they said about us.....

"The robust installations are a good advert. A no-nonsence approach."

Tim Jenks
Senior Executive
Confederation of Aerial Industries

"This is a company that has been built up on a solid reputation.

I am fortunate that I know Woking Aerials work, his reputation goes before him. Any person employing Woking Aerials is assured of a job well done.

Again being able to see work close up shows that Alan provides a service which is to be envied.

The system viewed by me was very impressive...."

Chris Glover

"This assessment was carried out as an NVQ assessment session.

I observed Alan, visit a domestic property, qualify the customer, fault find/diagnose the reception issue, and install a complete new aerial system.

This was done to an exceedingly high standard."

4G Roll-Out Interference

What is 4G?

4G, is an acronym for fourth-generation wireless, it is a type of technology that can be used with cellular phones, wireless computers, and other mobile devices. This technology will give users faster access to the Internet than most previous third-generation (3G) networks can offer, and it also offers new user options such as the ability to access high-definition (HD) video, high-quality voice, and high-data-rate wireless channels via mobile devices.

The roll-out for 4G began in May 2013 and is expected to be completed by 2016.

You may have read or heard about 4G and how it will affect your Freeview TV service. Some of what you have heard may not be entirely accurate, here are some facts about the 4G roll-out.

Will I be affected?

Up to 10% of households that watch digital terrestrial TV and live near a 4G mast may suffer interference after the mast is switched on.

If you live in one of these households, you will more than likely require some work to be carried out on you aerial or aerial system.
Will viewers of Satellite or Cable be affected?

If you watch only satellite or cable TV, it is anticipated that you will not be affected.

If you do experience any problems, you will need to contact your satellite or cable provider as normal.
I have more than one terrestrial digital TV, will they all be affected?

If you're among the 10% and have more than one terrestrial digital TV, all are likely to be affected.
I have a 4G mast near my property, will I be affected?

Not all 4G masts will cause interference – only those working at 800MHz.
If I am affected, how can the problem be resolved?

In most cases, a simple easy-to-plug in filter will remedy the problem.
If a simple easy-to-plug in filter does not solve he problem, what next?

In some cases a filter may need be installed on your roof which will require the services of an aerial engineer.
My property is served by a communal aerial system, what happens if I am affected?

If you live in a block of flats or other high-rise building with a communal aerial, your landlord or management company will need to engage the services of an aerial engineer to fit the filter.
I am at a loss and do not understand what to do, where do I go from here?

How have customers local to Woking been affected to date?
(July 2015)

We have only attended 3 customers with issues directly relating to 4G transmissions.

So far, it all appears to be a bit of a storm in a teacup.

I think '@800' are erring on the side of caution.
