Its new CellSpot device, part of the carrier's larger push to improve network coverage, acts as a mini cell phone tower in your home or office.
T-Mobile wants to make sure its customers can get a wireless signal anywhere, especially in two key locations: home and office.
The Bellevue, Washington, company said on Monday that it will soon offer the T-Mobile 4G LTE CellSpot, a low-power wireless radio that provides 3G and 4G cell coverage indoors. The radio, also known as a femtocell, acts like a mini cell phone tower in your home, connecting a wireless call directly to your home broadband connection. The company claims it provides an average of 3,000 square feet of strong 4G LTE coverage.
T-Mobile is offering the mini cell tower to its Simple Choice customers at no additional cost with a refundable $25 deposit for as long as they're T-Mobile customers.
