I have a poor mobile phone signal. Can I use a mobile repeater?

The unlicensed use of mobile repeaters is illegal in the UK. People using them can face a fine of up to £5,000 and up to a year in prison.

It’s for this reason that you won’t find these devices for sale in the High Street or through your mobile phone company.
