The Australian Government have sold part of the C Band spectrum to Telstra, NBN, Optus & Vodaphone, to be used for the new 5G Phone and Internet services, which will interfere with some people trying to watch their Italian Satellite channel.

I raised this issue with the Australian Government and Telstra, with their reply being "as the signal is arriving into Australia from overseas and we need the space for 5G services, some interference may be caused to users of C Band equipment, and we are sorry for any inconvenience caused. We can assure you that our phone towers meet all safety requirements"

Testing in Adelaide commenced on the 5th of December 2018 from phone towers located in Newton, Rostrevor and Athelstone, resulting in many Italian people losing their Italian RAI channel, of which some have had for the past 32 years.

Testing ceased for a short time over Christmas, but not long after, more people from other suburbs such as Campbelltown and Hectorville started complaining.

As the 5G tower roll out continued, more people reported losing their Italian channel on Thursday the 23rd of May 2019 around Holden Hill, Klemzig and Windsor Gardens.

I spent two whole days in December 2018 with customers trying everything possible to get their RAI channel back with no luck. Some people may be lucky to keep their RAI channel, depending on how far they are away from a 5G tower, and if their dish happens to be in a 'blind spot" from the tower, which explains why some people in the same street are ok and others are not.

As a result, we have stopped selling Large C Band dishes, and are now offering an alternate way to regain Italian TV, on a small dish, through a company called MYSAT.

Please call Ian on 0412 841 050 for more information about the interference problem, or how you can get your RAI channel back plus 5 other Italian channels - legally.
