Dutch regulator warns against high-power Wi-Fi routers

Monday 26 November 2012 | 16:48 CET | News
Dutch radio frequencies regulator Agentschap Telecom has warned against the use of high-power Wi-Fi routers for some services. The regulator has found that some businesses have been using high-strength outdoor routers to offer public Wi-Fi access to customers. While it is legal to sell the routers, their use is restricted to under 100 milliwatt, in order to prevent disruption to other users. Equipment certified for the EU needs to have the CE mark, and the AT will be checking equipment. The regulator said it has received several inquiries about the issue and recommends that businesses use repeaters or better positioning of access points in order to improve coverage.
