Illegal repeaters are getting a huge amount of press in Australia in recent weeks. And CEL-FI master distributor Powertec is playing an important role in creating awareness of this important issue.
It all began with current affairs show Today Tonight exploring the use of illegal repeaters, which happens to be a big problem in Australia. In putting the story together, they went to the Powertec offices to learn about the problem and what can be done to solve it. The end result was a great endorsement of CEL-FI smart signal boosters, recognizing them as an advanced and regulator-authorized solution to the problem. Here’s the clip:
Since the story aired, Powertec reports that ACMA (the Australian Communications and Media Authority) have ‘taken on’ some of the culprits, adding to the flurry of news coverage. Here are a few more links to fill you in on what’s happening down under:
- Crack down on unlicensed mobile phone repeaters
- Consumers warned to beware of illegal mobile phone repeaters
- Mobile phone repeaters targeted by ACMA and Fair Trading
