AT&T Announces MicroCell Rollout Plans

By  |  Wednesday, March 24, 2010 at 1:52 pm

I’m blessed with good AT&T coverage at my home. But if the situation was sketchier, I’d be interested in the company’s 3G MicroCell femotocell, which uses your broadband connection at home to enable five-bar quality voice and 3G data on AT&T handsets. The device has been in limited testing for awhile, but AT&T has announced here at CTIA that it’ll begin nationwide rollout in April. It’ll cot $150 (before a $50 rebate) and there will an unlimited calling option for $20 a month (which should help if your cell phone is your only phone and you’re not on an unlimited plan).

    If only I could get approval at work to stick one (or more) of these on the network. (I’ve got 8+ hours of radio silence each day in the office.) Then again, maybe I shouldn’t have to subsidize AT&T’s incomplete footprint. Which, incidentally, doesn’t release me from my two-year contract as far as I know. Silly.
