Statement published 5 November 2019

Accessing mobile networks from a vehicle can be troublesome for some consumers, particularly where they are travelling at the edge of mobile network coverage. If the mobile signal is already weak outdoors and must then penetrate through the glass and bodywork of the vehicle, once inside, it may fall below a usable level. In-vehicle mobile phone repeaters, also known as signal boosters and signal enhancers, can help to mitigate the loss of the mobile signal through the car’s bodywork.

We have decided to change the technical parameters allowed for licence exempt in-vehicle low gain mobile phone repeaters and amend the Wireless Telegraphy (Mobile Repeater) (Exemption) Regulations 2018 to implement these changes.
