Deadline to Comply with New Signal Booster Rules Extended to April 30


The FCC’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau has extended until April 30, 2014, the deadline by which all consumer signal boosters marketed, distributed, or sold in the U.S. must comply with the FCC’s new technical standards.  A new regulatory framework for both commercial and industrial signal boosters was adopted by the FCC in February 2013.  It required all consumer signal boosters to comply with the new technical rules on or after March 1, 2014.  However, due to unforeseen delays in the development of equipment testing procedures, the deadline has been extended by 60 days.  The FCC will now have additional time to certify consumer signal boosters under the new technical rules, which it expects will give consumers additional choices among compliant consumer signal boosters.
