So you have established that there is an issue within your business or home with the mobile phone signal. That’s the easy part. But how do you fix it? What is the mobile signal solution?
That can be a difficult question to answer. There are dozens of companies you can find in one quick Google search that will all claim to offer you the perfect mobile signal solution. It seems too easy. Unfortunately, it is all too easy to be lulled into a false sense of security. Mobile signal solutions are a tricky business. Their online presence is not heavily regulated like the sale of pharmaceuticals and firearms, but that doesn’t make them all legal.
If you browse the internet and find boosters or repeaters claiming to give you signal for all networks, those are most likely still illegal. OFCOM recently decided to change their regulatory guidelines for all mobile phone repeaters and this will include multi-network units; however, these will still need to comply with a strict list of guidelines. OFCOM will soon be publishing its list of legal multi-network repeaters so you can check for yourself whether the model you’re looking at online is legal or not.
The other key point you need to be aware of is that some mobile signal solutions will claim to be “OFCOM approved”, or they’ll be selling you an “OFCOM approved” legal signal booster. This is a big red flag. OFCOM is an independent body and they never approve equipment, sellers, or installers.
By choosing to go ahead with a Sure Signal mobile repeater installation we can guarantee that our work will serve you well for years to come. We offer 3G, 4G, and 5G ready solutions and we keep on top of all OFCOM requirements so you can be assured that the equipment we put in place will be there for good.
Over the last couple of years OFCOM have started to clamp down heavily on illegal repeaters, removing boosters and other equipment sold by mobile signal solutions installers for not complying with all the network safety regulations and standards required. These disreputable companies are often hard to tie down, with owners residing outside of the UK, leaving all the costs of replacing that equipment to you, the customer.
If you are still uncertain about whether Sure Signal is right for you, we can offer references from our many satisfied customers, some of whom have even had trouble with their previous mobile signal solution being illegal and who required a quick resolution to satisfy both their own mobile signal needs and OFCOM regulations.
