Those who are not in a service area for AT&T's traditional home phone or Internet services may find AT&T's latest offer enticing. The carrier started offering this wireless powered option in select markets last week. The service works through a modem (free with a two year contract) that connects to AT&T's cellular network to provide home and Internet service. You must have an AT&T signal in order to get this service and speeds will mimic what you get on your cellular device (since the modem will use the same cell site as your phone).
AT&T is offering unlimited nationwide calls for $20 a month, but Internet service starts at $60 per month at 10GB. Mobile Share customers can add their device for a $30 a month plan with unlimited nationwide calling and 10GB of shared data.
The device only works in HSPA+ and LTE areas in the following markets:
● Eastern Pennsylvania
● Southern New Jersey
● Washington D.C.
● West Virginia
Note that this is different than AT&T's microcell, which is a mini cell site that sends voice and data traffic through an Internet connection.
