Leics is a terrible area for communication.
Freeview - its bang on the edge of 2 different digital transmittors so not full channel line up available at least without boosters. Analogue transmittor in leics but no use for freeview.
NTL - Some areas are digital mostly outer city ones and outside of LE3, a big portion of inner Leics is analogue only and only some of it is broadband capable.
BT - East/South/North Leics all fairly good coverage and should get reasonable attenuation, West Leics is poor only has 2 exchanges covering 15km area, unlucky for the people in this area its same part of NTL that is analogue only in this area. Probably one of the most highly populated broadband blackspots in the country. At least sky tv makes a killing in west Leics

Wow ntl not even been honest and coming out with lies if thats true. I heard about the council giving BT concessions for digging up roads so are you sure permission isnt needed?
