AT&T Hints At Femtocell Service
Says singular voice plans will be coming...
by Karl Bode 09:01AM Wednesday Mar 12 2008
AT&T has long believed in their "three screen initiative," or the idea of seamlessness between your PC, mobile phone and laptop. AT&T's Michael Antieri tells Light Reading that some additional bundle ideas are coming before the end of the year, specifically a single voice-plan that covers both mobile and home phone lines:
quote:
Antieri also mentioned the idea of selling one voice plan to cover all devices, whether they be fixed or mobile. A similarly combined plan is being contemplated for fixed broadband and wireless broadband.
Last year AT&T issued an RFP (request for proposal) to suppliers to aid in deployment of a likely femtocell service, not entirely unlike T-Mobile's Hotspot@Home offering.

The nerve!

Come on, someone complain that they're just trying to make more profit, not help the consumer. Who do they think they are, a business in a capitalist economy?

Too little, too late

They could have already offered an all in one plan. As usual the behemoth dinosaur thinks and acts very slooooowwwwllllyyyy.
In the mean time I'm going to jump on sprint while they try and shore up their failing wire line business.

Re: Too little, too late

Exactly... This could have been and should have been promoted as part of Uverse

a) IPTV
b) Internet
c) VoIP
d) Integrated wireless

AT&T's old school practices do not help

Want Internet only - Dry loop DSL, or order Uverse with TV then cancel TV (WTF?)

Why doesn't AT&T offer a VoIP + DSL + Wireless package ?
VoIP (Call Vantage) isn't part of AT&T's 'standard' offering for residents at $25 when it can get $40 or more from Uverse Voice or POTS/LD.

What i'd really like..

All they seem to be talking about is Femtocell for service providers. What I really want is a Femtocell device that can connect to my landline and VoIP.

yeh right

Keep on hinting.

ATT does it well.

Unlike T-mobile who already embrased this idea a long time now.

That's old talk lets see ATT put the action button in the on position.
