WASHINGTON, DC – In response to the FCC’s adoption of the signal boosters NPRM, here is a statement from CTIA-The Wireless Association’s Assistant Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Brian Josef:
"While we have yet to read the NPRM, we remain concerned that poorly manufactured or improperly installed boosters can do much more harm than good for both consumers and public safety officials. The record is full of examples of such harm. One of the leading advocates for changes in the Commission’s rules, who also happen to be one of the leading manufacturers of boosters, has marketed and sold devices that have caused significant harmful interference. We hope that as the FCC moves forward with this proceeding, it keeps these actual, not theoretical, cases of harm in mind."
