Mobile Coverage Enhancers and their use in licensed spectrum

Consultation published 07|05|2014

a) The responses are respondents own views and opinions, not Ofcom's.

b) The responses are not statements of the law and Ofcom does not endorse their contents.

c) Ofcom does not endorse the use of mobile repeater devices. The law is that use of wireless telegraphy apparatus without a licence issued by Ofcom or in accordance with an exemption made by us is a criminal offence. Ofcom has not issued any licences nor made any exemptions for the use of repeaters. Ofcom is now considering whether to make an exemption in accordance with the relevant wireless telegraphy legislation but this does not provide a basis to use repeaters without a licence in the meantime.
