4G LTE CellSpot V2 T-mobil

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?


About the device

The 4G LTE CellSpot V2 delivers a strong, reliable wireless 4G LTE signal for customers with or without an indoor cellular signal on compatible 3G, 4G and LTE devices for up to 16 callers at one time anywhere a customer has broadband Internet and T-Mobile wireless spectrum.

  • Hi Heidi,

     The problem with Cellspots is that we are not able to activate them on to an account. This is what stops most from using them on Ting so I would not recommend purchasing the device. As a point of transparency though there have been customers who have been able to use them because they have it activated on T-mobile account. This is not something I recommend since it is a very select few who have been able to make this work. If you would like to read more about that there is a forum post here with both success and failures in using a Cellspot.
