In the UK, Ofcom permits the use of specific low-powered mobile signal boosters classified as “license-exempt devices”. These devices minimise the risk of interference with mobile networks and can be used without requiring a license. Our Amplifi-Qx solutions are powered by Cel-Fi signal boosters that are license-exempt.
To comply with Ofcom’s requirements, license-exempt mobile signal boosters must meet specific technical requirements, including power limits and frequency bands. These requirements ensure that the device operates within the permissible radio frequency (RF) spectrum and does not cause harmful interference. All of the products we use comply with Ofcom’s technical requirements.
Ofcom mandates that mobile signal boosters are “network-safe”, meaning they should not interfere with the normal operation of mobile networks. Network-safe devices include features such as automatic gain control, which prevents the booster from amplifying signals beyond the permitted levels, and automatic shut-off or reduction in gain in case of network interference. Every Amplifi-Qx solution uses network-safe Cel-Fi boosters.
Mobile signal boosters sold in the UK should carry a CE mark, indicating that they comply with the relevant European Union directives and regulations, including the Radio Equipment Directive (RED). This ensures that the device meets the necessary safety, health, and environmental standards. All Cel-Fi products carry the CE mark.
Ofcom maintains a list of approved mobile signal boosters that meet their regulatory requirements. Before purchasing a signal booster, it’s essential to verify that the device is approved by Ofcom to ensure compliance with UK regulations.
