FCC Slams Signal Jammer Company With Huge Fine

The FCC does NOT like the idea of anyone intentionally interfering with cellular signals, and they have just fined Chinese electronics maker CTS Technology $34.9 million dollars for selling signal jammers to US consumers.

The FCC is also trying to track down the names of everyone who purchased a jamming device from this company.

Though the idea of jammers blocking people from making phone calls in a theater or txting and driving sound appealing - the reality is that jammers cut off even emergency communications like 911 calls.

And a jammer doesn't just impact one room - some of the jammers being sold by this company impacted other users up to a half mile away.

Killing the signal, on purpose?!?! That's just not cool.
