T-Mobile on Monday announced their new 4G LTE CellSpot device, which broadcasts a low-power 4G LTE signal that offers up to 3,000 square feet of LTE coverage.
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.
The new device connects to a customer’s broadband Internet connection to deliver a 4G LTE signal for up to sixteen 3G, 4G, and LTE handsets at one time. The Magenta carrier says the device even works in some areas that don’t have a cellular signal available.
T-Mobile’s CEO, John Legere, took to Twitter to announce the new offering in his typically bombastic manner.
