AT&T to Launch 3G MicroCell

AT&T to Launch 3G MicroCell

Posted January 26, 2009 at 1:32pm by iClarified
AT&T has just launched a new site for its unreleased 3G MicroCell. The 3G MicroCell plans to extend converge indoors for people in a weak service area. From the details on the website, it looks like there will be a monthly plan involved.

Like Sprint’s AIRAVE and Verizon’s Network Extender, the 3G MicroCell will require a broadband connection to operate. It'll cover up to 5,000 square feet and allow up to four simultaneous voice or data connections. The AT&T 3GMicroCell will only work with 3G devices, unlike Sprint’s and Verizon’s which only works with 2G phones. It will also be manufactured by Cisco, versus Samsung for Sprint and Verizon.

Currently there is no word on a release date or pricing.

What is an AT&T 3G MicroCell™?

AT&T 3G MicroCell acts like a mini cellular tower in your home or small business environment. It connects to AT&T's network via your existing broadband internet service (such as DSL or cable) and is designed to support up to 10 3G capable wireless phones in a home or small business setting. With AT&T 3G MicroCell, you receive improved cellular signal performance for both voice calls and cellular data applications, like picture messaging and surfing the web for up to 4 simultaneous users.

Device Features:

* Enhanced coverage indoors - supports both voice and data up to 5000 square feet.
* Available unlimited minute plans - Individual or Family Plan.
* 3G handset compatible - works with any AT&T 3G Phone.
* Up to 4 simultaneous voice or data users supported.
* Device is secure - cannot be accessed by unauthorized users, easy and secure online management of device settings
* Seamless call hand-over - start calls on your 3G MicroCell and continue uninterrupted even if you leave the building.

Device Requirements:

* 3G wireless phone/device
* Broadband service over DSL or cable
* Computer with internet access for online registration

Additional Information:

* Installing your device near a window is strongly recommended to ensure access to Global Positioning System (GPS). A GPS link is needed to verify the device location during the initial startup.
* The 3G MicroCell device is portable. The device may be moved, provided the new location is within the AT&T authorized service area and properly registered online.

I Agree, I already have a mini Repeater here just to get AT&T signal to my iPhone, NOW they want to Charge me for setting there equipment up to MY Broadband and Charge Me?.. YOur Right, They should GIVE these to the people that are having trouble and not trying to Extort Money for what's already been paid for!

Ridiculous, they should be giving these away for free or paying people to use them. Why do people pay more for service they should already receive? @#$% ATT!
