If you’re one of the lucky (?) users who happens to be in the “top 7.5 percent of 3G wireless customers identified as likely to experience poor in-building coverage at home or in small offices“, you are eligible to receive a free signal boosting MicroCell from AT&T.
As one would imagine, there are strings attached: customers must agree to continue using AT&T wireless service for 12 months, or be charged $199 for the device (a price which is reduced by $16.67 every month). If you are planning on sticking with AT&T despite their lousy service in your area, there’s no reason not to take advantage of this offer. The MicroCell links to your existing broadband connection to create a 3G “hotspot”, which can be used with up to 4 simultaneous devices.
Eligible customers will receive a mailer on the 23rd with instructions on acquiring their unit.
