T-Mobile is offering its Personal CellSpot accessory for its customers starting today, which should allow them to get a better wireless connection in their home.
Here's T-Mobile's official description of the Personal CellSpot:
T-Mobile's Personal CellSpot is designed to give you a "fullbars" T-Mobile connection – in your basement, workshop, your beach house or anywhere else you have broadband. The patent-pending next-generation Wi-Fi technology we've built into the CellSpot prioritizes voice calls over other Wi-Fi traffic offering a stronger connection, fewer dropped calls and HD Voice like you've never experienced before. And, beyond calling and texting over Wi-Fi, the CellSpot can handle multiple connections making it ideal for data-hungry families and small businesses. With a coverage area of over 3,000 square feet, you'll have everyone covered no matter where they are in your home or small business.
As far as its technical specs, they seem pretty nice:
- Compliant with 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac standard
- Dual-band data rates (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) of 1900 Mbps
- 3 external antennas to extend coverage up to 3000 square feet
- Encryption: 64/128-bit WEP, WPA/WPA2-PSK, WPA/WPA2-Enterprise, WPS
- Dual USB ports
T-Mobile customers can get their own Personal CellSpot with a $25 deposit, while pre-paid customers can purchase it for $99. If you are a T-Mobile user, will you be buying this accessory for your home?
