Comment Dates Set For Signal Booster Rule Changes


In September 2014, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) released an Order on Reconsideration and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in which it addressed two Petitions for Reconsideration regarding signal boosters.  The Commission granted a Petition for Reconsideration filed by Wilson Electronics, LLC, V-COMM, L.C.C., and Wireless Extenders, Inc., and amended certain technical rules for Wideband Consumer Signal Boosters.  According to the Commission, these amendments will streamline testing procedures and benefit consumers by decreasing costs and complexities associated with manufacturing and certifying such devices. The Commission also granted in part and denied in part a Petition for Reconsideration filed by V-COMM, L.L.C., Verizon Wireless, and Wilson Electronics, and amended certain technical rules for mobile Provider-Specific Consumer Signal Boosters. The Commission is seeking further comment on whether to retain the “personal use” restriction on Provider-Specific Consumer Signal Booster operation. Comments are due December 29, 2014, and replies are due January 20, 2015.
