Re: Buy One Now If You Need It

Point.

I wouldn't mind the use of in-home boosters provided by the cell phone carrier, but these should be provided at no extra charge to the customer, as it compensating for a defect in the service.

Most carriers will provide one free of charge. As long as you show you get a crappy signal from them in your home, they will typically provide one for free.

But if you have a halfway decent signal, no one should be expecting the carrier to provide it for free, since it's not really needed.

It sounds like if you get Edge network you are fine. You can make and receive calls. The carriers that will give you a free Femtocell won't do it if you get a signal. It's not about speed but the signal. If you basically have no signal, that is when you can get the Femtocell. But one or two bars is a decent enough signal.
