AT&T today announced plans to roll out their 3G Microcells nationwide starting in mid-April. The Microcell (otherwise known as a femtocell) is designed to function in the same way as a cell tower, but utilizes a home broadband connection as the back-haul to the cellular provider. AT&T is pushing the 3G Microcell as a solution for those who get little or no cellular signal while at home.
In addition to the Microcell hardware, AT&T is announcing a companion rate option for $19.99 per month that will give Microcell owners unlimited calls through the 3G Microcell without cutting into their monthly minute allotment.
The 3G Microcell will cost a one-time fee of $149.99. Customers who choose the calling plan at the same time they purchase a Microcell are eligible for a $100 rebate, cutting the net cost to $49.99. An additional $50 rebate is available for those who sign up for an AT&T Broadband connection at the same time.
