UK’s Ofcom could allow in-house mobile repeaters

UK regulator, Ofcom, is consulting on proposals to allow consumers to operate two categories of mobile phone repeaters on a licence-exempt basis – static mobile phone repeaters intended for indoor use, and low gain mobile phone repeaters intended for in-car use. The use of consumer installed repeaters is unlawful at present, but Ofcom recognises that some homes have difficulty with mobile signals, as do vehicles. In 2016, the regulator set out equipment parameters that could be licence-exempt, and the consultation now has proposals for static mobile phone repeaters. Ofcom is not prescribing the mobile technologies that can be used (e.g. 3G, 4G). More here.
