How much is a microcell
How much is att charging for a microcell? Im frequently at a location that barely has service with any of the carriers. Att works slightly better than the others but it's mainly just good enough for texting.

The list price is $199. Some people have reported getting it discounted or free, but there's no consistent pattern (that never happens).

The discounted / free offers were based on where you live. Folks that lived in borderline signal strength areas / at the outer edges of cells were offered free microcells because it was a cheaper way to address their relatively poor service than dropping another tower in.

 

So it was a factor of AT&T identified areas of poor signal coverage and population density (i.e. if AT&T had many users in a borderline area, it was more inclined to offer the femtos to those customers)
