telecommunication towerOfcom consults on new rules for mobile phone repeaters

Ofcom is today proposing changes to the technical requirements for using mobile phone repeaters in vehicles.

In 2018, we made regulations to allow the use of certain types of mobile repeaters, which help improve reception, without the need for a licence.

We are now consulting on technical amendments to increase the maximum system gain allowed for in-vehicle repeaters, and to widen the range of frequencies they can use. There is no change to the maximum permitted output power. We intend to implement these changes by amending the Wireless Telegraphy (Mobile Repeater) (Exemption) Regulations 2018 and updating the relevant technical requirements.

Our proposals include updating existing the requirements by:
• increasing the maximum gain limits from 21 dB to 36 dB in relevant frequency bands above 1 GHz;
• increasing the maximum gain limits from 15 dB to 30 dB in relevant frequency bands below 1 GHz; and
• including the 2.6 GHz Frequency-division duplex (FDD) band in the list of licence-exempt frequency bands.

The consultation closes at 5pm on 6 September 2019.
