verizon network extenderRumors are circulating that Verizon Wireless customers may have the ability to get their own femtocell devices as early as January 25th.

According to Engadget, Verzion is preparing to release the Verizon Network Extender by the end of this month.  For those unfamiliar with femtocell devices, these are units that plug into your home Internet connection and give you extra cell phone coverage within a building by routing your calls over the Internet.  This gives the customer better coverage in their home or office, and helps out the cellular provider in that they don’t have to build additional towers to cover out of the way locations.

Sprint has been offering their own femtocell device, the AIRAVE, for several months now, and, as we reported, it appears AT&T may also be entering into the femtocell market sometime in the future.

With the AIRAVE having been first out of the gate, we have a barometer to measure these devices by, and the Verizon option is certainly falling short of it.  Sprint offered their device for $99 and unlimited calls with their service plan.  At this time it appears that Verizon’s device will run an amazing $249 with no mention of unlimited calls.  Of course, it can also be said that these devices should be free with the extra service plans they are selling since you are technically assisting the carrier, but we are unlikely to ever see that.
