T-Mobile HotSpot@Home launches

As if we really didn’t know it was a comin’. T-Mobile has officially rolled out their HotSpot@Home service nationally and if offering a free D-Link, or Linksys Wi-Fi router with paid service agreement. The unlimited add-on plan will go for $9.99 on top of your traditional voice plan, but what’s really cool is that included calls that even originate from Wi-Fi. Let’s say your talking to someone from home and using your home Wi-Fi, but then realize you have to run out of the house. The call seamlessly switches from Wi-Fi, to GSM except, your not charged for that call. Very sneaky and cool! This is definitely T-Mobile’s attempt to try and drum up some hype for their underachieving wireless data network and poor coverage, but this is an extremely useful feature and service nonetheless. What a week to launch, right?
