28 Nov 2008

Singaporean mobile and broadband service provider StarHub has launched what is being touted the world’s first commercially-available 3G femtocell service, under the banner ‘Home Zone’. The operator’s portable 3G femtocell devices will connect StarHub users’ UMTS handsets directly to their MaxOnline broadband-enabled router in the home/SOHO allowing them to make voice and video calls and send text messages via their cable connection. According to ACN Newswire StarHub is making all local outgoing voice, video calls and SMS messaging free for customers using Home Zone, saving them a significant amount on their monthly bills.
