T-Mobile is determined to make ‘Un-carrier 7.0’ reach more cities and be used by more Americans. In the US, the number of people covered by 4G LTE hit 300 million subscribers. The mobile carrier is very much in close competition with both the other top carriers. For the past months, T-Mobile has been introducing new promos, plans, and deals that are tempting enough if you’re not subscribed to this network.

A couple of weeks ago, T-Mobile brought back the #10Gigs4all promo for a limited time. It quickly followed the announcement about some devices getting Marshmallowed soon. Just last September, T-Mobile also expanded worldwide coverage to more countries and introduced the Lifetime Coverage Guarantee. There seems to be no stopping the company especially with the Un-carrier 7.0 as it launched the T-Mobile 4G LTE CellSpot that anyone can buy to set up at home, office, shop, or classroom. It’s your very own 4G LTE mini tower meant to be be used indoors up to 3,000 sq. feet (about 279 sq meters).

As expected, the outspoken CEO John Legere is confident about this one. He said, “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.”

This new product brings more personalization to Un-carrier 7.0 customers. If the Wi-Fi CellSpot Router is for WiFi connection, having a 4G LTE CellSpot doesn’t depend on a wireless network but more on cellular connection—specificallly 4G LTE. This means most services from T-Mobile are ready including HD voice and VoLTE. These features bring the best mobile LTE experience to anyone, aside from assuring that each 4G LTE CellSpot will provide the customers connection all the time. This is like the Wi-Fi CellSpot Router that was released last year but this one is 4G LTE -enabled.

T-Mobile 4G LTE CellSpot is available free for Simple Choice subscribers. If you depend on your 3G stick, it’s time to upgrade to this 4G LTE CellSpot. Unlike other carriers, you don’t have to pay for a new device.

Other Un-carrier products and services available include a Wi-Fi CellSpot Router and 4G LTE CellSpot Signal Booster. The 4G LTE CellSpot will be ready for purchase starting November 4, Wednesday, online or in select retail stores.

  1. Is this similar to Sprints “Airave” which was introduced many years ago? This device allowed you to get Sprint service in your home if you had a weak signal.

      • Since I don’t have T-Mobile and I don’t know what things like “HD Voice” means I can assume that if the goal is to get you T-Mobile service at a location that has no or weak T-Mobile reception then this is indeed similar to Sprint’s Airave that was introduced years ago. I can tell you that this was a lifesaver for me since after I moved I had lousy Sprint reception in my house. Airave completely changed that and effectively gave me 5 bars of signal at home.

      • The Tmo device hooks to your broadband ethernet connection and sends out a LTE signal just like a real cell tower so your phone works like it normally works without wifi. The airave uses wifi to hook a wifi enabled phone to your broadband. The Tmo device doesn’t require a wifi enabled phone. The overall effect is the same, you can use your phone in a cave or at a cabin in the mountains where there is no signal.

      • Sprint’s Airave works the same way, both devices need an internet
        connection to function and both put out cellular signals. So make sure
        that your cave or cabin the mountains is wired for internet 🙂

  2. They have it backwards. The technology we need is to take the data off the air and get it on fiber as quickly as possible. You should be able to set up a cell “tower” in your home or office. It would be connected to the internet and all calls would route over the internet connection, not the air. That would free up spectrum and make better use of high-speed fiber.

    • If you read the article they point out that they already have something like that… “If the Wi-Fi CellSpot Router is for WiFi connection, having a 4G LTE CellSpot doesn’t depend on a wireless network but more on cellular connection”

      The point of wireless calling and data via a home tower is that not everyone has access to fiber in their area. Fiber costs a lot to install, so remote areas will never see it.

    • Current version of WiFi Calls are really bad.. I have not had good experience. however, may be a tight integration and some engineering test might produced better outcome. But yes it is possible and should be allowed..

      Also, Fiber to Home now should be under utilities… because this big internet service companies are robbing the people..
