AT&T Announces MicroCell Rollout Plans

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).
