AT&T Launches 3G MicroCell: Extend Your Coverage
AT&T hasn’t had the best year as of late due to the horrible stories of dropped calls, iPhone 3G “dis”-service and even a delayed promise to MMS for iPhone users. But now they’re trying to remedy their lack of 3G coverage but finally jumping on the bandwagon with their new AT&T MicroCell MicroSite.
For $20.00 per month, you can purchase this MicroCell to extend your 3G coverage, increase signal strength at home or wherever you place it and provide unlimited talk time. According to Boy Genius Report, “You get a device called a femtocell that will let you use your land-based broadband internet connection (that you pay another company for) to make calls and use data on your phone. Of course you don’t get a discount for using land-based broadband instead of your carrier’s cellular network, but you just mutter under your breath and fork over the cash anyway.”
