When the last femtocell rolled out it did not work correctly, after some network changes or upgrades it worked great. I was very pleased with the femtocell and imagine this will be a great product for anybdoy in an area with less then perfect coverage.

And you would need this for indoors why? Oh right verizon. And before you fanboys jump all over my post I will tell you that I have verizon and can't get shit for indoor coverage in a city with, or as their map says, excellent coverage. Their coverage is bs. Although I am glad they have one of these actually supports data. Now if they could actually charge the correct price for it I might actually consider it. Sprint ftw? Hmm.

Sprint is not "For the Win" as they charge you an ongoing monthly service for $5/month for using it. So yes they charges $99.99 for the price, but then charge you $5/mo for the comprable unit. Over two years, that's actually $120. So the $199.99 Verizon charges is not as bad as it seems. As you would of saved yourself $5/mo and who knows how much over the long term after the two year threshold. Since with Sprints model is ongoing $5 for the life of you needing a unit.

Head over tohttp://www.spotwave.com/reside
ntial/learning/weak_indoor_sig and read up on what causes poor indoor signal, and how/why it is outside a carrier's control. NO carrier ANYWHERE can guarantee indoor coverage, period. However, with everyone dropping their home service to switch to all cellular service, more and more people call in whining about it not working in their kitchen, living room, under their tin roof (seriously). This device offers those users a solution, and a lot cheaper than a repeater (starts at $300, up to $1500 for those that do voice and data repeating at spotwave) nal.asp
