Every day at 7 a.m.: an old TV set was jamming the Internet in a whole village for a year and a half
In the British village of Aberhosan (Wales), the Internet went out for 18 months. The reason for this was the old TV, which interfered and jammed Wi-Fi, writes "Lenta.ru".
The engineers at Openreach (the local provider) did not understand what was happening. Every day at exactly seven in the morning, about 400 residents of Aberhosan were deprived of the Internet. This went on for a year and a half.
Moreover, formally, everything was in order with the network. The specialists even, just in case, changed the cable that went to the village, but this did not help either.
As a result, the search led to the house of an elderly man living in this village.
It turned out that the pensioner watched an old TV every morning, which emitted a single high-level impulse noise (SHINE). It interferes with other devices.
The owner of the appliance was upset that it was interfering with the Internet and agreed not to use such a TV anymore.
