Verizon Wireless Debuts Femtocell Product
Verizon Wireless has begun offering a femtocell called the Network Extender. The Extender provides extended cellular network coverage in the home (approx. 5,000 square feet) through a subscriber's broadband (DSL, cable or fiber) connection. The Extender costs $250, which the users must pay in full, though there are no monthly costs associated with using it. The Extender only provides CDMA 1xRTT coverage for voice and NationalAccess data. It does not support EVDO or GPS services, such as V CAST Music or Verizon Navigator. It will only work with Verizon Wireless subscribers. It can be purchased online or by calling Verizon Wireless telesales.

Requires GPS connection, not just internet...
AT&T comes in last again....
2nd - Sprint gets the "AirRave"
3rd - Verizon introduces this equivalent
4th? AT&T, with your copper and DSL, will you have a femtocell soon? The only requests I get for repeaters lately all have iPhones and I have to tell them their company is the only one without a >$200 solution
