Signal Boosters

The FCC has eliminated the confusing personal-use restriction on Provider-Specific Consumer Signal Boosters. This decision was made easier because major carriers report no instances of interference since the FCC adopted a consent and registration process as well as a Network Protection Standard for boosters in 2013. The Second Report and Order and Second FNPRM released on March 23 proposes to eliminate that same personal-use restriction on Wideband Consumer Signal Boosters. It also requests comments on whether these boosters should be permitted to operate in additional spectrum bands and proposes to remove barriers, so that these devices may be embedded in cars, boats, and RVs.
