Airave available nationwide from mid-August

1 Aug 2008

Sprint’s Airave femtocell, described by the operator as a ‘mini cell tower’, will be available nationwide from 17 August. The Airave was piloted in Denver and Indianapolis last September. It uses Sprint’s CDMA network and is compatible with all Sprint CDMA phones, but does not work with iDEN handsets. The Airave femtocell, which is made by Samsung, will cost USD99.99 and customers will then have to pay an extra USD4.99 per month. Customers that do not have an unlimited voice plan can get unlimited in-home calling by subscribing to the optional Airave Unlimited Voice plan for USD10 per month for individuals or USD20 per month for families.
