Tomas, et al.:

Cisco stopped manufacturing AT&T's 3G-capable microcells in mid-2017 so
they're no long available and don't support 4G/LTE/5G. So, that's not a
practical option.

Now I would appreciate points so I can learn how to route calls (and,
perhaps, text messages) from my Nokia 6.1 Plus Android One through my WAP,
router, and FiOS 'Net access using VoIP. Assuming this is a practical
solution since the signal dropping issue occurs only here in my home/office
and occassionally in other places where it really doesn't matter to me.
