Chinese Company Fined Record Amount by FCC

The Federal Communications Commission announced that it had charged a fine of a record-breaking amount to C.T.S. Technology Co. Ltd. a Chinese online retailer and manufacturer of electronics.

The fine is $34.9 million, which was revealed this past week publicly by the FCC. The fine stems from allegations the company marketed as well as sold electronic signal jammers to customers in the U.S.

In the eyes of the FCC, that is illegal. So against the law, that the FCC issued the largest fine allow against each of the jammer models that C.T.S. allegedly marketed across the U.S.

In all, that would total 285 units that have been sold over the past two years on the websites owned the company.

The company has alleged to have stated that the same signal jammers were approved for use by the FCC. However, that statement was false.

THE FCC said that all businesses no matter if they are domestic or foreign, are not allowed to market the illegal jammers due to being a direct danger to the safety of the public.

The FCC also reported that the Chinese company C.T.S. sold 10 signal jammers to people who were working undercover, which does not help to win the regulatory agency’s support.

However, it should be noted that it is not C.T.S.’s fault if the device lands in the hands of a citizen from the U.S.

Federal legislation prohibits the marketing, selling and importing of the devices, as well as their use inside all 50 states.

The FCC says the use of a signal jammer is so against the law it fined a man for using a jammer while he was on the highway. The amount he was fined was $48,000.

Those who support the use of a signal jammer said they should be allowed in certain areas.

The FCC wants people to report the use of sale of the illegal jammers by calling the regulator agency directly or sending a message on the complaint portal online for the FCC.
