Mobile Repeater Information

What is a Repeater?

A mobile repeater is an electronic device that can be used to improve indoor coverage of mobile phone services.

These services are ideal for people with poor indoor reception. Poor indoor signal is caused by many factors, including the type of insulation used in the home.

How do they work?

An external antenna picks up the mobile phone signals outside the home and amplifies it inside the home giving the user improved indoor reception.

Only repeaters that comply with ComReg’s standards and carry the CE and EU quality standard mark are permitted.

Illegal devices that do not meet these conditions can cause interference to the mobile network and even other consumer devices.

ComReg strongly recommends and advises having a professional installer conduct the installation.
