We ask what makes Cel-Fi signal boosters so good - and we look at why they are the ONLY legal option when it comes to boosting indoor mobile signal in the UK.
In April 2018, UK communications regulator Ofcom enforced new regulations called the Wireless Telegraphy (Mobile Repeater) (Exemption) Regulations 2018. Essentially, they’re aimed at allowing joe public to use specific mobile signal repeaters without having to get a licence.
But so far there’s only one manufacturer whose products are up to standard. They’re called Nextivity and their fleet of Cel-Fi signal boosters is the only one that’s been granted licence exemption in the UK. That’s because these products are the only ones around that meet Ofcom’s stringent requirements.
Under the new regulations, wideband repeaters have been rendered 100% illegal and there are now just two types of signal repeaters that can be used without a licence. These categories are:
- Static mobile phone repeaters for indoor use
- And low-gain mobile phone repeaters for in-vehicle use
Cel-Fi signal boosters fall into the former category. And here’s what’s so good about them.
Unsurprisingly, there are several different Cel-Fi products available. So if you’re suffering from poor network coverage every day, how do you know which of the Cel-Fi signal boosters is right for your building?
You speak to the experts at Boosh Signal Solutions, that’s how.
With several different types of the Cel-Fi signal boosters available, it can be hard to work out which one is right for you and to decide how many you'll need. But a simple conversation will be enough for us to tell you where your solution lies.
