For today’s Tech Tip we’re answering the following questions–
Does Wilson Electronics have boosters that comply with new FCC regulations?
Do I have to register my booster with my cell provider? If so, what is the process of doing this?
These are some great questions, and we’re going to get down to the answers right here on this post.
Let’s start with the first question – do we have boosters which comply with the new FCC regulations and guidelines? The answer is yes – all Wilson boosters shipping since the April 30, 2014 deadline have gone through the new FCC certification process and are approved for sale and purchase. For example, our AG Pro Quint (461104), DB Pro 4G (460103), DT 4G (460101), and Mobile 4G (460108) all meet the new certification requirements. If you have questions pertaining to which booster would work best in your application, you can discuss your situation with our Customer Support team at 866-294-9234 (or leave us a comment here!)
Do you have to register your booster? Per FCC guidelines, signal boosters may only be operated with the permission of wireless providers. Most wireless providers, including AT&T, Sprint, T–Mobile, Verizon, and many others, have agreed to allow the operation of consumer signal boosters that meet the FCC’s new rules as long as the end user registers their booster with their service provider. To read more on this, you can visit the FCC website on Consumer Boosters here: http://wireless.fcc.gov/signal-boosters/consumer-boosters/index.html.
Now – how do we register our booster with our cell phone provider? We have provided a link for customers to find their provider and register their booster either online or over the phone/email. That link is found at http://www.wilsonelectronics.com/carrier-registration.
If you have any questions regarding our boosters or registration of our boosters, you can always call our Customer Support line (866-294-9234) or our Tech Support line at (866-294-1660) and any of our capable technicians will be happy to assist you.
