Consultation: Mobile phone repeaters

  • Start: 19 May 2021
  • Status: Closed
  • End: 28 July 2021

We are proposing to extend the range of repeaters available for people to buy and install themselves without a licence. In particular, by allowing certain types of repeater (‘provider-specific’ and ‘multi-operator’ repeaters) that will operate on the frequencies of more than one mobile operator to be licence-exempt, provided that they meet our proposed technical requirements.

We are also seeking views regarding the value of Ofcom publishing a list of mobile phone repeaters that can be used without a licence on our website. We are proposing that a device only be listed on our website if it has been demonstrated (following testing by an accredited test house and in according with a voluntary testing standard produced by Ofcom) that it complies with the technical requirements of our licence exemption regime. This should help people identify static indoor mobile phone repeaters that can be legally used without the need for a licence.
