This thing is NOT a signal booster. It hooks up to your ISP router. It creates a cell tower in your house by picking up your cell phone signal and sending it out over your router. I've used a similar device on Ting's CDMA network in the past called a Sprint Airave 2.5. But this T-Mobile device is for the GSM network. Does anyone know if it will work with Ting's service?
