FCC Signal Booster Registration

Consumer signal boosters are devices that can help cell phone users improve their coverage in areas where they don't get a good signal by amplifying wireless signals to extend coverage.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted new rules for wireless signal boosters that went into full effect on March 1, 2014. These rules require consumers to obtain their wireless carrier’s approval before operating a signal booster, and to register their devices with their wireless carrier. With these changes, U.S. Cellular® will now allow the use of FCC-certified consumer signal boosters on our network.
