Frequency Telecom announces Cel-Fi Smart Signal Boosters meet Ofcom new regulations

By April 12, 2018June 15th, 2020No Comments

UK regulator Ofcom has confirmed the making of regulations to allow people to use certain types of mobile phone repeaters without a licence. The new regulations come into force today – 12th April 2018 and are known as the Wireless Telegraphy (Mobile Repeater) (Exemption) Regulations 2018.

Cel-Fi Smart Signal Boosters are licence exempt under UK law and fully meets the requirements of Ofcom SI 2018/399*.

The making of these regulations follows a decision in October 2017 that licences would no longer be required to use two types of repeaters. These two categories are static mobile phone repeaters for indoor use, and low-gain mobile phone repeaters for in-vehicle use, but only when complying with required technical standards and conditions of use. The unlicensed installation of wideband repeaters will remain illegal.

Frequency has been a distributor of Cel-Fi products, by Nextivity for over 10 years and is delighted with the OFCOM announcement. It urges businesses to check the legality of their current signal solutions to ensure they meet the new OFCOM requirements.
