I find that a bit disconcerting.

By LAW you are not allowed to interfere with radio signals. If the 4G system is going to do that then the 4G system is in contravention of the law.

Its called "covering their behind" that letter has been out for a while, yes its true, but I have not heard of anyone affected, just leave things as they are.

"covering their @rses' just doesn't work.

Anyone who causes, deliberately or otherwise, the interference or disruption of established communications systems is in breach of the Telecommunications Act re interference.

It is THEIR responsibility to stop, prevent or otherwise correct the error of THEIR making - not yours. If you ARE affected then kick up merry h3ll and report them to the Radio Regulatory Authority (assuming they don't 'fix' it).

Pieces of paper 'warning' you of consequences does not absolve them from their responsibilities.

All of this is well established in law and they should be well aware of it.

Who has actually sent the letter?

Is it some sort of scam?

Nope, not a scam.
It may be said that "covering their rear" doesn't work by sending out letters, and it is against the law etc, but the fact is, that is exactly what is happening.
I am not here on behalf of any phone company etc, I am not saying it is not illegal, I am saying like it or not, that is what is being done.
