Hi

 

I am buying a mobile signal booster to pick a stronger siginal at my dads farm north of Rotorua.

 

I know I need one to work with 4g 700 mhz but they need to know the uplink/downlink freq ranage to send me the right one.

 

Does anyone know I can find that out or what the freq will be?

 

Have tried calling Spark, but this is something they do not get asked.

 

Thanks

 

 

 

Will

What sort of signal booster? There is on approved device for NZ - the Cel-Fi

 

I assume you realise all others are illegal and you'll have both Spark and RSM chasing after you and fining you?

Hi

 

Thanks for that information.

 

It's a 4G 700MHz Cell Phone Signal Booster Amplifier +Yagi For LTE 4G. I would give a link but can't do it right now as I am a new member. If you type this into ebay it will show up.

 

Do not want to use it if it's illegal in NZ. I will email RSM to make sure if this product is ok or not.

Buying from ebay will certainly mean it is illegal. There is only one option for you in NZ: http://www.cel-fi.co.nz/

As pointed out your option will be illegal and you risk being fined up to $30,000 for use of illegal radio equipment. Because Spark and RSM have the ability to, and will hunt you down if you cause interference, it's simply not worth the risk.

Cellutronics also do something similar: http://cellutronics.co.nz/Repeaters.php

 

So there are a number of parties that do it in NZ. But they must be supplying certified gear.
