Complying With Cell Phone Booster Regulations

If people are experiencing poor reception to their cell phones, either where they work, in their home or sometimes even if they are out and about in a car or motorhome, they often resort to buying a cell phone booster. Although there is little doubt that, if used and installed correctly when needed, these boosters do work effectively, there are strict regulations concerning which booster you buy, where you buy it and if and where you may use it. As always though, these are not universal or even global regulations, they vary from country to country. Therefore before you buy one, you should research purchase Signal Booster and ensure that meet the legal requirements for use in your particular country. Once you have satisfied yourself that you will be meeting all the regulations that apply to your particular situation or location, you can confidently buy one that best suits your own individual use.

There are boosters made to suit most locations and uses, some are designed for use in motorhomes, RVs and campers, some of which are equally suitable for use in cars, trucks and other vehicles. There are some that suitable for static locations but only cover small areas such as a desk, small apartment or kiosk while others are capable of serving larger areas such as warehouse or business complexes. Of these boosters that serve different uses, there are two basic types, smart signal boosters and analog boosters and both are capable of effectively boosting cell signals and reception but use different types of antennae. The analog booster will often require professional installation as it uses directional antennae which need to be pointed in a certain direction but the smart signal booster is a plug in only device as it uses an internal, multi-directional antennae.

As mentioned, different regulations as to the purchase and use of boosters exist in different countries and in the UK, although they can legally be used, a license is first required to do so. The process involved in obtaining a license includes all relevant service providers first having to provide the license issuing authority that they cannot provide a better service to that area or for that purpose and once a license has been granted, the device used must meet all regulations prescribed by the EU.

In Australia, as it is considered that a booster may disrupt service to other service users, service providers control their use. If an individual therefore wants to use a booster, they must purchase it from their service provider and then that service provider must maintain a strict register of purchases in order to be used as evidence in any disputes over disruption to the services of other service providers.

For many years in the United States, the use of boosters has been legal provided they comply to FCC standards but, in 2013, the FCC regulations concerning boosters drastically changed and so today, there are very few boosters available that meet all of the new regulatory standards.
