Arrangements for licence exempt use of mobile phone repeater devices

Ofcom has today published a consultation setting out plans for permitting the licence-exempt use of certain types of mobile phone repeaters, intended for in-home and in-vehicle use.

Repeaters boost and retransmit mobile signals. Their use by consumers is currently unlawful, as the type of wideband repeater that we come across today can cause interference or other adverse effects to mobile services for other nearby customers. The only exception is if the repeaters are supplied and operated under the control of a mobile network operator.

The effect of our proposals would be that repeaters which meet our requirements would be available for consumers to buy and install lawfully themselves. This relates specifically to static repeaters, intended for in-home use; and ‘low gain’ repeaters, intended for use in cars. The use of wideband repeaters installed by consumers themselves would continue to be unlawful.
