Below is an excerpt from an official statement we made earlier today regarding the FCC’s issuance of an NPRM. Feel free to share your thoughts with us in this matter, by leaving a comment with us in the section below.
“Wilson Electronics commends the FCC and its Commissioners for its issuance of a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM), which will gather industry suggestions as to what specifications cellular signal boosters should meet in order to obtain FCC certification. Today’s action ensures that cellular signal boosters can continue to benefit consumers in underserved areas and help public safety officials in their jobs.
“We are pleased the FCC agrees that new standards for signal boosters are needed. We are hopeful that as the rulemaking process proceeds, the Commission will adopt the standards proposed by Wilson in 2009 to protect consumers from poorly designed boosters that can interfere with cellular service and damage service provider networks.
