I thought I would do a Tech Chop article on how to fix the terrible cellular coverage in your home. The reason being is that cellular coverage in my house is pretty much non-existant. At first I thought it was my carrier, which is Sprint, but it turns out anyone who comes over can't get a decent signal in my home. Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, it doesn't matter. Nothing works. Me being a Google Voice user, I was able to find a good way to workaround it using some free apps, and therefore I decided to make this week's Tech Chop about that!

Also in the video I mention the AT&T 3G Microcell, but that is really expensive. A Youtube user also mentioned a similar device for Sprint called the Airave, but although it isn't expensive, there is a cost involved. I prefer the Google Voice + app method, as it doesn't cost a damned thing and it works. Check out the video:
