Saorview’s frequencies are changing on the 4th of September.

 

Following a decision by the EU, some of the TV broadcast spectrum that is used by Saorview is to be reallocated to other purposes. The spectrum that is being cleared is the 700 MHz frequency band. The Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE) has published information on its website detailing the parties responsible for the change which can be viewed here.

As a result of the 700 MHz migration some Saorview customers will be affected by the changes. The migration is taking place between Wednesday 4 September 2019 and Wednesday 4 March 2020, and Saorview will be providing information and advice to its viewers in order to ensure that they are aware of the migration and how the changes may affect them. Saorview customers can check to see if they will be affected by the changes by using this website or by contacting the Saorview team.

Many Saorview users will not be affected. But for those that are affected, they will need to retune their Saorview box or TV, and some customers may need to have some work done on their aerial and/or installation.

Mobile Phone Repeaters

ComReg has permitted the use of Mobile Phone Repeaters

The Commission for Communication Regulation has permitted the use of certain Mobile Phone Repeaters to help improve the mobile user experience.

 

The ComReg decision to permit the use of mobile repeaters was one of the key recommendations of the Government’s Mobile Phone and Broadband Taskforce. The Taskforce suggested that ComReg explore introducing a regime that would permit the orderly installation of mobile phone repeaters. The Taskforce noted that such devices would be of particular use to households and businesses in rural areas.

ComReg has set technical conditions that Mobile Phone Repeaters must comply with to be permitted. The technical conditions aim to provide consumers with better indoor coverage while protecting Mobile Network Operators from unwanted interference as a priority.

Devices that do not meet the technical conditions will remain illegal under the Wireless Telegraphy Act 1926 to 2009.

Contact us today to pre order your mobile phone repeater.
