AT&T Wants Your $$$ For Better Service, We Am Dumb.
If AT&T were a regular human being, they'd be that sleazy car salesman that talked to you into buying a car you don't even need.
AT&T has begun testing Microcells in two states. You hook one of these babies up in your house and you'll piggyback onto your internet connection to get a better AT&T signal in your lead box of a house. How much would you expect to pay for such a great service, free? Wrong, stupid. Get ready to pony up $150.
Sure the thing looks like a large modem built in the 70s, but you'll get some sweet coverage inside your crappy apartment! BUT, if you want unlimited calling, get ready to ALSO throw down $20/mo. Hey man, this is AT&T's world of crappy reception, and we're just living in it. Way back when I had the original iPhone, I pretty much had negative service. I might as well have lived in an underground bunker. But as soon as I got the 3G and now the 3GS, I don't have to worry about that, apparently my podunk town is a hotspot of 3G connectivity, who knew?
Anywho, it's pretty funny that a phone company wants you to pay so that you can use your own internet to get a better signal. And what's even funnier, is that a lot of people will pay up when this rolls out to the masses.
We am dumb.
