Anybody knows about Mobile Signal Boosters?

Does anyone know of recent crackdown on Mobile Signal Booster products ?
I came to know they can affect service quality for others.
How exactly is it possible unless it uses huge antennas or signal blocking ??

According to DoT :

“Our department has taken a very serious view on the installation of illegal repeaters as it has become a major obstruction in providing quality telecom services and clean spectrum”

They use small antenna with a power to interfere with a particular tower and creating trouble to all the users using that tower

“interfere with tower”
You mean like a DDoS attack ? stuck_out_tongue
But that’d require many users.

Only security concern I can think of is extended repeaters and signal boosters can give false user geolocation which can be used by terrorists.

No bro.. nothing security issue. They just suck the towers signal strength to their side leaving all other users with no or very less signal

RF energy dissipation per unit area is constant
