AT&T Charging $150 to Increase 3G Signal

No AT&T Service at Home? $150 Will Fix That

Plagued by poor service, residents in certain parts of certain cities (ahem, San Francisco) are having trouble accessing an AT&T signal from their own homes. Now, AT&T has a solution, but it'll cost you $150. The AT&T 3G Microcell acts like a cell phone tower inside your home. It works with your home's Internet connection and will support up to four users at once. The 3G Microcell will be available to customers in select cities in mid-April.

I suppose this is a worthwhile service for existing and loyal AT&T customers, but isn't improving the signal a better idea? Besides, if you're going to make calls via Wi-Fi, why spend $150 on another gadget when you can download the Skype app for your iPhone — free.

Verizon has had a device like this for a long time. Funny that it is a big deal when AT&T comes out with it. Guess it is because AT&T's service is so crappy, lots of customers need something like this!

i had a similar issue with my sprint service. i literally couldn't make phone calls from my apartment. but when i called i pointed out that according to their service map i should have some of the best service in the city in my neighborhood, they sent me a similar product for free (it runs around the same price were i to actually pay for it, plus a monthly service fee). so if att is saying you should have service where you live, try that.

it just seems like they're using their own poor service to make money
