Additional Details Regarding AT&T’s Femtocell Emerge, 3G Microcell
So AT&T has yet to officially take the wraps off their 3G Microcell (aka Femtocell). As we originally reported, the device will utilize the homes (or office’s) broadband connection to assist 3G devices in making calls or sucking down data. In the event that the user is amid a call and leaves the designated 5000 foot radius, the AT&T service will seamlessly hand the call over to the network. Although AT&T’s 3G Microcell is designed to support up to 10 devices, only 4 users can simultaneously utilize the device. Additionally, the Microcell uses GPS for initial setup.
Sorry, but there is still no word on price, release date or official specs. If you’re one of the lucky customers who is testing the device please drop a comment or email us some pics.
