Re: Maybe they think it's giving you a home line for free I don't agree with banning them, but I do think the US economy needs some modification to capitol gains taxes. Less than a year should be taxed as short term, under current rates. A middle term should be created for 1-5 years, using the current long term rates. And a new long term of 5+ years created with a flat rate, below the person's income tax rate.
This would encourage an investment environment concerned with the long term viability of a company, rather than the "how much can we screw our customers today, with no concern for tomorrow" view investors have now.

Re: My VZ issue.
said by Mr Anon :you sound like a commercial customer, I am surprised they would not have a separate service for such users where they could say come out and get the GPS chords for your buildings and then register your IP on their system as a cell tower(because id imagine in the outside world if my cell phone cant get GPS due to trees or a tunnel, E911 still knows what GPS located towers I am near)
Is that I don't know how many you can put behind an IP. When I contacted my rep he said that it wouldn't work for VZs PTT (software) service that required 3G.
The way we currently have our service with them setup I need to put many units behind 1 or a few IP addresses and possibly a different approach to the GPS lock issue. Most of my builds have Metal layers between the floor and roof as well most to all utilities ran over head. If I can't get good wireless I don't think I'll get a GPS lock. If I could register this to a building address? Get a lock to the front door and maybe list what unit made the 911 call.
I'd like to keep other off of it as well but I'd need either to just point to my account or list all the numbers by CSV at a concentrator... in short I need an enterprise extender.

Pricing I guess I don't understand why, if AT&T's local tower isn't TOO congested, they'd see it in their interest to hand me a femtocell.
Granted, my AT&T service isn't that great here. OTOH, my wife's Verizon BlackBerry gives a similar number of bars; it wouldn't be that clever for me to jump from AT&T to Verizon for better coverage. (Sprint, T-Mo? I used 'em both and neither had the coverage I needed.) And if I'm not likely to jump ship, why should AT&T worry about losing me? I don't see going cold turkey.
How much do these little gizmos actually cost, anyway? Seems they're not unlike a wifi router, with the addition of GSM, G3, GPS and who knows what else. So that's more than a router, and routers have only in the last year or two come down dramatically in cost as competition and volumes increased.
So femtocells seem still on the verge, not ready for mass market pricing. Any hard-n-fast facts to the contrary?
