A new 4G mast has been switched on in Brandon.
The mast will give people faster access to the internet on their smartphones and tablets.
However there is a chance that some of the signals transmitted from the mast could cause interference to those who use Freeview in the area.
Signs of interference include loss of sound, lower picture quality, freezing, the TV screen going blank and showing a 'no signal' message.
A company called at800, set-up under government direction, offers free support to households which are being affected by the interference. Cable and satellite TV, like Sky or Virgin, will no be affected.
