FCC Slams Signal Jammer Company With Huge Fine

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

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.
