Ofcom is today consulting on a Statutory Instrument

23/11/2017

fcom is today consulting on a Statutory Instrument giving effect to a decision in October 2017 to allow the use of 'mobile phone repeaters', without the need for a licence. Mobile phone repeaters amplify signals between a mobile phone and the network operators' base stations, enhancing coverage for the user. Our October decision licence exempts two categories of repeaters: Static mobile phone repeaters for indoor use; and

Low gain mobile phone repeaters for in-vehicle use. The regulations to licence exempt these two types of devices are due to come into force in early 2018. This Statutory Instrument also seeks to harmonise the frequencies and technical parameters for certain short-range devices (SRDs). These include devices such as car key-fobs and baby monitors, and follows a decision by the European Commission to harmonise these devices across Europe. The closing date for responses for this consultation is 21 December 2017.
