Verizon Wireless expected to offer Network Extender femtocell on January 25th
Having problems getting a Verizon Wireless signal at home or in the office? Do your conversations over the Verizon network sound like a bowl of Rice Krispies with crackling and popping? Expected to be offered at Verizon Wireless stores and Big Red's web site on January 25th, the VZW Network Extender connects into most broadband modems to give you up to 5,000 square feet of enhanced cellular coverage. Calls will be clearer without the interference from electrical items. The device, working with all Verizon wireless phones and plans, supports up to three cellphones at one time with one channel available for emergency calls. Packaged with the Extender is a 10 foot Ethernet cable, power supply cables, an external GPS antenna and 23 foot cable, and guide books. The retail price is expected to be $249.99. Verizon will now join Sprint as the latter carrier offered their AIRAVE femtocell device last August. This device will really eliminate any "Dead Zones" for VZW customers.
