Verizon introduces a new 3G Network Extender
Last year we reviewed the Verizon Wireless Network Extender, which is a Samsung SCS−26UC4 Femtocell that connects to your home's internet with a CAT5 Ethernet cable and allows your Verizon phones to use it as a mini cell tower for calls. This was good news for people tho had poor coverage at home. Unfortunately, at that time data was limited to using the slower 1X connection speeds, but earlier this year at CES 2010 we saw that a 3G Samsung SCS-2U01 model was in the works. It has taken some time, but starting today Verizon is now selling the new 3G Network Extender, which offers 3G Data using EVDO Rev A/0, but still remains backwards-compatible with 1X devices. Another benefit of this new 3G Network Extender is that it allows up to 8 phone to be connected to it at once, were the original model only allowed 3 (plus 1 for 911). You can pick-up the Samsung 3G Network Extender SCS-2U01  for $249.99 and it uses your current Verizon calling plan and data plan, which means you don't have to pay extra per-month to use it, as it will deduct used minutes and data from whatever plan you have.
