Commission steps up education efforts about jamming devices

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is stepping up efforts to remind both retailers and consumers that the marketing, sale and/or use of devices designed to interfere with cellphone communication is illegal.

The Commission has issued separate FCC Enforcement Advisories intended to educate both retailers and consumers about its regulations involving the use of cellphone jammers, the potential dangers associated with the use of jamming devices, and the potential penalties associated with the marketing, sale, or use of such devices.

The Commission has also released a poster that can be displayed by retailers and other public establishments, warning against the use of cellphone jammers.
