4G LTE CellSpot V2 T-mobile

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.

Firmware Version
Only one coverage device is allowed per coverage use address.
While multiple devices can be in the same general area at different addresses, they do not work together (such as handing off between devices).
Only one MSISDN can be associated with the mini tower at any given time.
Provides a dedicated LTE connection in home or small office.
Delivers un-congested network capacity and improved 3G/4G UMTS and 4G LTE voice and data performance.
Supports up to 16 simultaneous users (8 on 4G LTE and 8 on 3G/4G UMTS).
Any T-Mobile customer within range can access this connection and it cannot be blocked.
Covers an average of 3,000 square feet.
No existing in-home signal is required but customers must be within the T-Mobile coverage area.
No complicated wiring is needed.
Plug and play in the home or office.
Connect to home high-speed Internet and then connect the GPS antenna to the CellSpot.
Supported technologies
Supports most 3G/4G UMTS/LTE handsets.
Supports both T-Mobile branded handsets and other carriers’ handsets compatible with TMO network.
Only T-Mobile customers can use the mini tower.
The mini tower supports these technologies:
Band 2 LTE (1900) and UMTS
Band 4 LTE (2100) and UMTS (U2100) - UMTS/WCDMA/HSPA
Band 2 LTE (1900)
The mini tower does not support these technologies:
Band 12 LTE (L700)
If VoLTE is turned off, only the voice service defaults to UMTS.

Technical requirements
Wired high-speed Internet is required; Satellite Internet is not supported.
Below are the minimum speeds needed to support the CellSpot:
Ping / latency: 200 ms (or less)
Upload: 0.5 Mbps (or more)
Download: 2 Mbps (or more)
Bridge mode: enabled
UDP ports: 123, 500, and 4500 opened
Supports 3G/4G UMTS and 4G LTE-capable handsets.
T-Mobile branded or gray market devices compatible with TMO network.
Must be installed in a location where T-Mobile offers service, owns licensed spectrum and has a local E911 relationship.
Only one coverage device is allowed per coverage use address.
Only one MSISDN can be associated with the mini tower at any given time.

  • 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.
