AT&T Finally Rolling Out 3G MicroCell Femtocell in Mid-April

Microcell I don’t know what has been holding up AT&T on rolling out their MicroCell to the whole countries but it looks like the wait is almost over. In case you don’t know AT&T’s 3G MicroCell is what AT&T is branding their femtocell solution. A femtocell is a mini cellphone tower that piggybacks on your broadband internet connection to add coverage in your home or small office. Its useful if you live in a location with spotty AT&T coverage.

AT&T is planning on rolling out their MicroCell starting mid-April with a one time device fee of $149.99 which is not terrible. They are also throwing in a $100 mail in rebate if you sign up for the $19.99 unlimited calling plan. That plan would let you make as many domestic calls as you want over your MicroCell at home for a flat rate.

It should be interesting to see if this gets the same lackluster uptake as similar solutions from Verizon and Sprint. It just seems like customers are not willing to pay money to improve their wireless carriers coverage.

  1. I get basically the same thing through T-Mobile for $9.99 a month with UMA calling.

  2. This landed the 23rd in Arizona. Check At&t website and check the availablity Checker. Got mine last week and works as advertised. One thing to note, MMS over microcell is not working as of yet on some devices (winmo and BB) but a fix is coming. Set up takes about 60 minutes to complete. Works on ANY at&t 3g phone unlike the tmobile system that requires UMA phones or WIFI enabled.

  3. Have had my Sprint Airave sitting in the closet for over a year doing nothing
