Caution buying cell phone boosters, amplifiers or repeaters online

People buying these products on websites claiming to be in New Zealand continue to be conned. Devices bought online can cause interference across the wider cellular network and you may be penalised. If you are considering some sort of booster for your coverage then talk to your service provider. The three service providers all have an approved device available to buy.
