FCC Fines Conv Ctr for Jamming WiFi HotSpots

 

In a HUGE victory for NewLeads exhibitors who use our WiFi, the FCC has fined the Gaylord (Mariott) convention center in Nashville a stinging $600,000 penalty for breaking the law by jamming attendee and exhibitor WiFi hot spots.  NewLeads has had to continually fight against this illegal practice in place at many exhibit halls around the country to enable our customers an uninterrupted WiFi connection to our servers. Finally, the FCC has made it clear: jamming WiFi will result in big penalties!  Read the story here.

The FCC has also created a NO JAMMING hot tips page at http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/jammer-enforcement and added this alert:

Federal law prohibits the operation, marketing, or sale of any type of jamming equipment, including devices that interfere with cellular and Personal Communication Services (PCS), police radar, Global Positioning Systems (GPS), and wireless networking services (Wi-Fi).”
