T-Mobile has announced a new 4G LTE CellSpot that acts as a mini cell tower for your home. The 4G LTE CellSpot is free for Simple Choice customers.

"Think of it as your own 4G LTE mini-tower – with low power settings for indoor use – providing an average 3,000 sq. feet of glorious full-bar T-Mobile LTE coverage throughout your home, small business or virtually anywhere you need it."

While the Wi-Fi CellSpot Router uses Wi-Fi for calling and texting, now customers don’t have to use Wi-Fi to get coverage where they want. The 4G LTE CellSpot delivers the complete T-Mobile LTE network experience, including the Un-carrier’s latest network advancements—like VoLTE, HD voice for crystal clear calls, advanced messaging, video calling and more. In fact, it’s the world’s first device of its kind that is 3G, 4G and VoLTE-capable, and any T-Mobile customer can connect to it automatically just like any other cell tower – no passwords or log-ins required.

“Where the T-Mobile Wi-Fi CellSpot’s like a T-Mobile tower, this new 4G LTE CellSpot is a T-Mobile mini-tower—and it’s a huge feat of engineering,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “The big difference between us and the carriers is that they’ll do absolutely everything they can to bleed you dry. We’ll do absolutely everything we can and use every proven technology available to give you the best coverage possible.”

The T-Mobile 4G LTE CellSpot measures just 8.5” wide by 8.5” tall and is just 1.3” thick. It needsd to be connected to your broadband Internet and supports up to 16 calls at one time. It works with any 3G, 4G or LTE device compatible with T-Mobile’s network, including those that can’t use Wi-Fi calling; and can deliver 4G LTE even in places where cellular signals aren’t available.

The T-Mobile 4G LTE CellSpot is free to eligible Simple Choice customers − one per business or home location − with a refundable $25 deposit and a non-return fee. It will be available November 4 in participating stores nationwide or shipped through T-Mobile Customer Care. For more information, hit the link below...

I got something similar from AT$T a few years ago (pre-LTE) and it was worthless. I live on a hillside just below the line of sight of a tower that's about 2K feet away. now I have T-mobile and it sucks here too. I'm only comforted by the fact that I'm paying less for the same crap service around the house. I've tried enabling wifi calling here at home (great signal to a 100+ Mb pipe) and it really sucks. If I drop a call and turn it on to call the person back it works okay mostly but if I leave it on it drops more calls that my 4G connection. I'm going to try this CellSpot thing because it's free but I'll be very surprised if it works.

So is this just converting the broadband one already pays for at their home of office into a cellular signal meaning it's only as strong and / or reliable as one's broadband and anyone can jump in it, including one's neighbours? Or are we misunderstanding this. Still useful but just want to clarify why it is really doing, extending their network by piggy backing on cable?

My guess is that this finds its way to a network lte tower and get the service from there like travel through wall outlets or through those cords that are round and screw into routers.

Yeah, what I found out with a less than in-depth reading was that up to 16 people can connect to your personal cellspot and there's no way to keep anyone walking by who has T-Mobile from connecting to it. Pretty sure why these things are free—they're getting a massive boost to "their" coverage through them.
