T-Mobile's CellSpot Wi-Fi router available now
Last week, during T-Mobile's Un-Carrier 7.0 event. the mobile operator announced that it would offer the Asus built CellSpot personal router to those who have trouble connecting to T-Mobile's pipeline from their home. According to the carrier, 57% of U.S. cellphone users report dropping calls from their own house. The personal router connects T-Mobile's broadband with a customer's handset to instantly give the user full bars and HD Voice. The latter is a system that provides extremely clear audio over a handset, removing extra noises. T-Mobile says that having the personal router is like "like having a personal T-Mobile tower in your home."

CellSpot works with Wi-Fi calling. For T-Mobile customers with a Simple Choice plan, all new phones purchased will now offer the service, which allows subscribers to make calls and send texts via Wi-Fi. Some of  T-Mobile's top selling handsets already offer Wi-Fi calling. Those phones include the Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus, HTC One (M8), Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, among others.

To get their own CellSpot, T-Mobile customers need a qualifying Simple Choice plan, a broadband internet connection, and must put up a $25 deposit. You can pick up the router from your local T-Mobile store, or go online and arrange to have one sent directly to your home. The router has a range of 3000 square feet.
