Are mobile signal boosters legal in the UK?

Today’s blog discusses the question on many organisations lips when they begin the process of enhancing their indoor cellular coverage:  

‘Are mobile signal boosters legal in the UK?’ 

The short answer to this question is yes, mobile signal boosters are legal in the UK. 

Now, it would be far too informal and not fully correct to end this insight here. That is because yes, although mobile signal boosters are legal in the UK, they are subject to stringent regulatory requirements.   

These regulations must be adhered to, and to be on the right side of the law you cannot purchase just any mobile signal boosters even though they may seem to be easily available. 

What are the UK regulations surrounding mobile signal boosters in the UK?

The regulatory body responsible for mobile signal boosters is OFCOM, the UK’s communications regulator. Mobile signal boosters are subject to the regulations set out in the Wireless Telegraphy Act (2006).
