If you’ve got a relative living in an area where Freeview could be affected by 4G, you can do your bit to help by sending them a postcard via Twitter.
At800.tv, the group that’s been set up to deal with reception issues related to 4G rollout, has launched a new ‘postbox for Twitter’ campaign. The idea is that you can tweet a message with the tag #at800postbox and it’ll be printed onto a postcard and sent out free of charge.
You’ll need to follow the @at800tv account so you can DM the group the recipients’ address in private.
Residents in affected areas should have got plenty of At800.tv literature through the door now so a personalised postcard ought to have a bit more impact.
But why not follow up the postcard with a call as well? When the time comes for O2, Vodafone and the rest to flick the 4G switch on and flood the 800MHz spectrum with faster cat video downloads, your family members and friends will be better informed and prepared.
At800.tv says that postcards can be sent out to the following areas:
- Glasgow and Paisley
- Leeds and Bradford
- Newcastle upon Tyne
- St. Albans
