NCC CEO, Umar Garba Danbatta

GSM boosters are devices that transmit and receive telecommunications signals and can therefore interfere with other radio frequency equipment.

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has warned the public to desist from illegal use of GSM boosters.

GSM boosters are devices that transmit and receive telecommunications signals and can therefore interfere with other radio frequency equipment.

This warning is contained in a statement by Mr Tony Ojobo, NCC Director of Public Affairs, published on the commission’s website on Tuesday in Abuja.
“The attention of NCC has been drawn to the fact that GSM boosters are illegally used by individuals in the country.
“Individuals desirous of using the GSM boosters should note that they can only do that in conjunction with licensed network operators.
“For the avoidance of doubt, wilful interference with any wireless telegraphy is an offence under Section 16 of the Wireless Telegraphy Act 2004.
“The commission will not condone any flagrant beach of the law,’
’ he said.
Accordingly, mechanism have been put in place to monitor and anyone caught using the GSM booster without obtaining approval of a duly signed licensed network operator will face arrest and prosecution.
