AT&T’s femtocell solution - MicroCell is on the way
Just like the rest of the leading carriers, AT&T is going to launch its femtocell solution. A lot of information about the nature of the MicroCell technology, as well as its requirements has been published officially. AT&T MicroCell is the equivalent of T-Mobile’s HotSpot @Home, Sprint’s AIRAVE and Verizon’s Wireless Network Extender, but the main difference is that it comes with 3G support. It acts like a mini cellular tower that you can place in your home or workplace, providing you with higher signal strength. It is designed to support up to 10 3G-capable wireless phones. You’ll get better performance for both ordinary voice calls and data applications for up to four simultaneous users.

To operate with the AT&T MicroCell you’ll need to have a wireless phone/device, broadband service over DSL or cable and a computer with internet in order to register online. Unfortunately, the price is still unknown.
