Lets be clear at 800


[link to this post]
 
People,

If your TV reception suddenly goes screwy then feel free to check where these muppets might be doing tests. Feel even more free if you notice obviously temporary antennas and boxes on poles marked "G4 Mesh" appearing on traffic lights and the like locally. Today, I finally received a card from them advising me of tests they were about to start and offering a free filter, but if you check their website you will find these tests actually started 2 months ago, and I can say with certainty that they have for me and my neighbours intermittently completely knocked out TV reception of various channels (BBC 1, 4 and News 24 have been particularly affected). Me thinks from their recent press releases that they are in complete denial about the extent of the problem and the sudden arrival of the card is at least an acknowledement of it. I did complain 2 months ago after hunting them down as the most likely cause. They deigned not to reply to emails and despite their own website flatly denied they were even testing in my area when called.

Website looks like a complete joke, after reading it for 5 minutes I still don't know what the hell it is talking about.
