Consumer Signal Booster Info And Reminder For Carriers To File FCC Form 499A
The FCC has issued a Public Notice reminding nationwide wireless service providers to provide information on their company websites to indicate their consent to consumer use of signal boosters, and how consumers can register those devices. This stems from the 2013 decision to require consumer registration of signal boosters. Unfortunately, since that time, not all nationwide wireless service providers have made it easy for consumers to register. Carriers must notify the FCC of their status by March 9, 2016.
Here is a copy of the Public Notice.
In other news, this is a reminder that wireless carriers, regardless of size, must file their Universal Service Form 499A by April 1, 2016. Below is a link to the Form. Our staff would be pleased to assist you in completion and filing of the Form.
Form 499A can be found here.
