New Booster Tech Specs Cover Consumer, Industrial Use
A Report & Order adopted earlier today at the FCC aims to improve signal-booster design by requiring manufacturers to include safeguards that protect against interference. The order addresses consumer and industrial boosters, with different regulatory requirements for each. Already, AT&T Wireless, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile USA and Sprint Nextel along with other rural and regional carriers have agreed to use boosters on their networks as long as the gear meets the technical specs outlined in the order. While lauding the R&O for its technical standards, consumer watchdog Public Knowledge chided the agency for putting carriers before subscribers, in that subs must get consent from their carriers to even have a booster (including requiring some 2 million who previously purchased boosters) and that carriers can restrict what brands and models of boosters their customers can buy.
