    Mobile Phone Repeaters - brief

    A mobile repeater is an electronic device that can be used to improve indoor coverage of mobile phone services like calls, texts and data.

    How it works

    An external antenna picks up the mobile phone signal outside of a house or office, then amplifies it inside giving the users improved reception

    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.

    View further information on repeaters and suppliers in the FAQ below.

    Which devices are illegal?

    For repeaters to be bought and used in Ireland they must comply with ComReg’s technical conditions. Devices that do not comply with these conditions are illegal to sell or use and can be seized by ComReg and users may be subject to prosecution.

    Through its market surveillance activities ComReg issues take-down notices to online marketplaces selling non-compliant devices. A list of websites that sell non-compliant repeaters can be found here. This list will be reviewed and updated on an ongoing basis.

    Please check back soon for a list of examples of non-compliant (illegal) mobile phone signal boosters.

    Who can install a repeater

    There are no restrictions on who can install a repeater. The installation requires placing an external antenna outside the property. This may involve the use of ladders and power tools and knowledge on where the nearest mobile base station is for optimum setup. These can be located using ComReg’s siteviewer webpage.

    While the setup is relatively straight forward, ComReg strongly recommends and advises having a professional installer conduct the installation. ComReg is currently conducting a review of its list of suppliers and installers of repeaters.

    Do I need a licence?

    No, a licence or registration is not required.

    What is the difference between Boosters and Repeaters

    While many devices are advertised as mobile phone boosters or repeaters both amplify mobile phone signals. However, only certain ones meet the required technical conditions set by ComReg. Illegal devices that do not meet these conditions can cause interference to the mobile network and even other consumer devices. Illegal devices will be seized by ComReg and users may be subject to prosecution.

    Boosters are usually cheap amplifiers that do not have any built in mobile network interference protection. Most boosters also fail to comply with the essential requirements of the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) and the European Union (Radio Equipment) Regulations and as such they do not carry the CE mark.

    Repeaters on the other hand, meet the required technical conditions and essential requirements and so they carry the CE mark. They must also be accompanied by a document called a Declaration of Conformity to confirm they comply with the RED.

    What type of repeater do i need

    This depends on your requirements.

    Calls: – If you only want to make calls then a single band GSM Repeater is what you require. This may also be advertised as a 900 band repeater, this is because the 900 MHz band is used for GSM (call/texts) in Ireland.

    Data:- For data a 3G (2100 MHz band) or 4G (800 MHz band) is what you require. This also depends on if 3G/4G is in your area. If you want calls & data then a multiband repeater is what you require.

    ComReg has no restrictions on the number of network operators a repeater can amplify. If the residents at a property are all on different networks then a multi-operator repeater is probably best. However if indoor reception for one operator is fine but another is weak then it may be more convenient to purchase a single operator repeater.

    Can 2 people make calls at the same time? What if they are on different networks

    Yes and if you have a multi-operator repeater the device will be able to handle calls on different networks at the same time.

    Will a repeater cause interference?

    The repeater must comply with the essential requirements of the Radio Equipment Directive so it will not cause interference.

    Will it cause interference to my WiFi?

    No. WiFi devices work off different frequencies to mobile phones so the repeater cannot cause interference to your home WiFi network.
