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.
