AT&T likely to test a femtocell before the end of the year
Now why in the world would AT&T, with "more bars in more places," need a femtocell (note sarcasm)? Regardless, in line with Verizon's upcoming Ubicell and Sprint's AIRAVE, the company claims to be testing a device. An AT&T spokeswoman confirmed to Unstrung that "it makes sense that we would examine the potential benefits of femtocells for our customers," and confirmed that the company is "currently doing testing in its labs and a trial was planned for later this year."

No specific details have been released in regards to the signal booster, but this news is bound to excite many people that carry AT&T and live or work in fringe areas.
