How do I know if the 4G broadband will overload my Freeview?

Interesting website with lots of up to date info on this matter.

During 2013, some of the frequencies that were used for television before the Digital Switchover will be auctioned off and used to provide 4th generation (4G) mobile broadband. Many homes will need to fit a filter, and a small few will have to switch (for free) to Freesat.
The really complex Radio Spectrum Chart is worth downloading.

I remember posting something about this before titled with a rather grumpy subject: http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,109360.0.html
I'm hacked off with it all I really am. We were told freeview would be reliable an yet from my POV its nothing but a pita.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

It is how 4G and LTE signals will interfere with Wifi is probably the biggest problem.
