Atlanta, Ga (PRWEB) August 06, 2012
Wi-Ex, a leading provider of consumer and commercial cell phone signal boosters, announced today its support of the industry Joint Proposal before the FCC regarding cell phone signal boosters. The Joint Proposal submitted by another booster manufacturer and cell phone service providers including Verizon and T-Mobile proposes consumer cellular signal booster protection standards for adoption by the Federal Communications Commission.
Wi-Ex supports the Joint Proposal including the licensing process for all consumer cell phone signal boosters; however is against the Registration requirement. In addition, Wi-Ex joins other parties in its stance that a carrier-specific approval process would prevent the growth for consumer-oriented signal boosters.
“As a leader in consumer cell phone signal boosters, we see firsthand the positive impact of cell phone signal boosters for consumers and businesses. We recognized from the beginning that oscillation could be an issue and developed patented technology as a solution to the problem,” said Sharon Cuppett, vice president of marketing at Wi-Ex. “With hundreds of thousands of boosters already helping municipal, state and federal governments, military installations, security agencies, businesses, healthcare facilities and most importantly consumers, we hope to see a resolution soon and support the Joint Proposal as a way to reach that resolution.”
