    How it works

    The T-Mobile Personal CellSpot™ Router improves the Wi-Fi signal in your home. Use it to max out your Wi-Fi coverage, even when your cellular network signal is weak, such as in your garage or on your lawn chair. Now you can take full advantage of your home Wi-Fi network to make calls, send/receive texts and connect to the web at no additional cost.

     

    The Wi-Fi CellSpot Router is not the same as a signal booster. The Wi-Fi CellSpot Router is designed for customers who do not get at least one bar of 3G/4G signal at their homes. The router uses Wi-Fi Calling for calls at home instead of the T-Mobile network. So while the Wi-Fi CellSpot Router does not boost the wireless network signal, it will provide a strong signal to make and receive calls via Wi-Fi Calling in your home.

    • The T-Mobile Personal CellSpot has patented Wi-Fi technology built to prioritize your Wi-Fi calls.
    • Its 3000+ sq. ft. coverage means less dropped calls.
    • The router supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz, which means more Wi-Fi capable tablets and laptops can connect, all while giving precedence to your Wi-Fi calls.
    • You can keep your existing router and use it in addition to the Wi-Fi CellSpot Router or you can swap out your old router to the new Wi-Fi CellSpot Router. In most cases, swapping it out will yield the best results. See Wi-Fi CellSpot Router setup for details.
