    Neither did I until I read it yesterday on Ofcom's site or somewhere similar.


    edit, also dont you have to have a 4g signal ( for each different mobile network you intend boosting inside of your house ) outside of your house/office to make this work inside???

    Also Silverdale, network signal can be affected by the type of phone and the software installed.
    I.E. the version of firmware and version of baseband radio etc. I had a HTC on Vodafone and the signal was crap when they released the phone.
    3 month down the line they released a new Radio firmware via an OTA update which sorted it , but I'd already read about it on another site and installed the european radio firmware instead of EE and it worked perfectly.

    Apparently it's OK to manufacture them, sell them, own one, but not use one. Can you imagine if they use that theory with crystal meth ?

    I have tried my sim in a few phones and all give the same results , rubbish reception. It's at the point now I can't take a call so I will have to move provider.
    I was intending taking us all over to Virgin mobile due to the good sim only deals but that's definitely not an option.
    EE do a repeater for about 80ish and people on the virgin forum reckon they work fine with Virgin. There's also the option of some cheaper repeaters on Fleabay from China but they are illegal.
    I know one thing , at the moment I might as well head for the grid in the street and stick my 15 a month down it.

    The EE Repeater?? do you mean the EE signal box? if yes? then this is what I use but it is connected to my router via an RJ45 cable. Where do you live @silverdale, NE England?
