CD-R King and retailers to stop selling signal boosters




CD-R King and other retailers have signed an agreement with telco giant, Globe Telecom, to discontinue the sale of illegal repeaters and signals boosters in the country.

Globe Telecom and major gadgets and IT equipment retailers CD-R King General Merchandise, Electronics Boutique and Smile-Com have signed an agreement that will stop the sale of repeaters or signal boosters that do not comply with specifications set by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC).

This agreement is in accordance to the NTC Memorandum Order 01-02-2013 that prohibits the selling, purchasing, importing, or using of repeaters or boosters that are not approved by the commission in an effort to prevent harmful interference to the Cellular Mobile Networks.

Repeaters or signal boosters are antennas that boost network signals in areas with weak coverage by hogging bandwidth from legitimate network infrastructures.

“We appreciate the cooperation of the major retailers of gadgets and technology items in the country to support our drive against the use of illegal repeaters. Many of the existing retailers have been previously unaware that the sale of such equipment violates existing laws,” said Atty. Froilan Castelo, head of Globe Corporate Legal Services Group.

    If these telcos offer better signal and services then these gadgets wouldn’t be for sale.

  3. Smokescreen says:

    Globe wants to stop these boosters so that they can set up their own equipment and overcharge consumers for it and disguise it as expansion projects to serve loyal customers better. LOL

  8. dong says:

    the memorandum does not say anything on how they will address the root cause of the problem. people will still find ways :)

  9. Zo says:

    So how much did this cost globe?

  10. Mark says:

    So CDR-King na ang Supplier nila ng signal booster? Hehe

  11. yui says:

    Lupet ng globe. Yari na naman kaming mga postpaid users niyan, may biglang gulat na naman sa bill next month. Pambawi sa nagastos nila. fck

  12. ed says:

    With the kind of signal that globe is transmitting, its not a surprise why these boosters are being sold everywhere, since globe is not doing anything with the signal complains that were being filed by their users. it’s not a surprise that consumers will find their way to boost the signal.

  13. someone says:

    pakibasa naman.

    “stop the sale of repeaters or signal boosters that do not comply with specifications set by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC)”

    so kung nagcocomply at inspected ng NTC na within specification, walang problema at pwede pa rin ibenta.

    anything that connects to a cellular network needs to have an approval from NTC.

    3G broadband stick, local branded phones like myphone and cherry mobile, branded phones from Samsung and Sony that are sold by AUTHORIZED retail shops all have a NTC seal on it.

    So if CDR-King still wants to sell these devices, they should ask for their devices to be inspected by NTC. Only then would these be allowed to be used legally.

    Now i know na meron pala nyan. hehehe

  15. theSandies says:

    Bobo ng globe. Pati simpleng signal blockage nga di nila maayos kaya di nila masisisi na mag signal booster ang mga tao. Bulokkkkkk kasi signal nila buti pa smart o sun.

    CDR-King now is selling everything…from pencil to telecommunication equipment. Next, will be kaldero, palayok, at baka kotse maid in Taiwan. Mahilig kasi yung ibang tao jan ng mabilis o kaya shortcut just to satisfy their needs…pero people remember if we want to go to the right way, maayos na serbisyo bakit hindi tayo magreklamo at makialam sa kung ano problema na nararanasan natin…if we have issue on our telco provider services magreklamo ka sa business center nila or hotline. gnun din sa ibang services sa private or public sector. This merchandise is not a telco provider or accredited manufacturer of this kind of devices, they just keep on building and providing what they know na kelangan nung mga taong bumibili sa kanila na hindi nakikita sa mga major merchadisers.

    • Nimrod says:

      di ko alam kung taga san ka jejemon or kung anong telco gamit mo pero I think di mo pa lang siguro nasubukang magka problema sa line mo.

      madali lang sabihin yan na magreklamo ka dun sa mga business centers nila pero in case you’re dreaming, di kaya perfect ang reality. Subukan mong mawalan ng internet for 1 month at pinagbabayad ka ng ISP mo. Tawag ka ng tawag sa customer service, walang kwenta ang scripted na sinasabi sayo. Pagkatapos mong masubukan yan, sabihin mo uli na ganun lang kadali.

    I’m not saying na masamang gumamit nito kasi it’s for your own satisfaction of services lalo na sa mga walang signal sa loob ng bahay. The reason why Globe banning this kind of repeater/booster is because it can effect voice/signal quality for those others who do not use the booster. I worked on one of the telcos and my group installs/supervising installation of this kind of equipment and if the installation of this is not right, it can effect other areas’ signals near the place this equipment installed and even your own place due to interference. take note every telco has their own frequencies.

    pero kapag tumama yung installation mo and the frequency emitting/recieving by this equipment it surely boost your signal.

    • NTC and globe work hand in hand, Globe just wants to make you spend more money on load rather than improving nation wide, from what i have seen in the hinter lands of Mindanao the signal is poor always off and on making it very difficult for the people. Yes if you live in a city Like CDO or Davao you can get a good signal most of the time but wake up telcos not everyone can live in the city. lets hope Telstra can do a better job than PLDT or Globe your people deserve it.
