Sprint Introduces Airave To Help Weak Reception

Article Comments  17  

Sep 17, 2007, 2:57 AM   by (staff)

updated Sprint will begin offering a new femtocell device to help improve reception in homes to subscribers in Denver and Indianapolis. The Airave is a small box users plug into their home broadband connection that will cover an area of approximately 5000 square feet. Unlike T-Mobile's HotSpot @Home, the Airave uses femtocell technology to extend regular cellular coverage, so users do not need to buy a new handset to use it. The Airave will cost $50 and Sprint will charge an additional service fee of $15 per month for individuals or $30 for families, which includes unlimited calling from the Airave. Up to 3 people can make calls from an Airave at once. The device is made by Samsung and was shown off at CTIA as the "UbiCell".
