DoT asks e-commerce sites to pull down listings of mobile signal boosters


With mobile network boosters becoming a major reason for poor service quality, the Department of Telecom has asked online sellers to pull down listings of such equipment, an official statement said on Thursday.


The DoT has also carried out raids across multiple locations in South Mumbai over the last two days which led to the removal of 68 illegal boosters (or repeaters), it added. The action comes amid frequent complaints of poor network quality in various parts of the country.
