Sprint to Launch Samsung AIRAVE Femtocell to Provide Unlimited Voice in Homes and Offices
      #30965 - 07/30/08 10:28 AM

Sprint and Samsung announced today that customers across the country will soon be able to get enhanced wireless coverage, plus the option of unlimited calling with an AIRAVE voice plan, in their homes or offices with the upcoming nationwide launch of the Sprint AIRAVE by Samsung. Here is more info:

The AIRAVE is the first commercially available femtocell, a mini cell tower that works with any Sprint phone* and a broadband Internet connection to provide enhanced in-home wireless coverage. Customers purchasing the AIRAVE can take advantage of unlimited in-home calling with an optional AIRAVE Unlimited Voice plan.



With the AIRAVE, Sprint customers can:

-Take advantage of enhanced coverage without having to purchase a new phone.
-Talk all they want when subscribed to the optional unlimited AIRAVE calling plan. With the plan, unlimited incoming and outgoing calls and nationwide long distance are included when using the AIRAVE.
-Use their existing Sprint phone, with the option to upgrade to the latest phones at any time. All Sprint phones are compatible with the AIRAVE.
-Easily install the device using their existing broadband Internet connection and AC power outlet. The AIRAVE is ready to use straight out of the box, with no configuration changes required.
-Take their call with them. Calls initiated on the AIRAVE will transfer automatically to the Nationwide Sprint Network when leaving the AIRAVE coverage area.
-The Sprint AIRAVE acts like a mini cell tower by creating a licensed spectrum CDMA network signal within the customer's home or small office, providing enhanced wireless coverage up to 5,000 square feet. When compared to unlicensed spectrum solutions (e.g., WiFi network solutions), the AIRAVE is designed to offer more reliable performance, less interference, and is compatible with all Sprint phones.

Starting August 17, Sprint customers will be able to purchase the AIRAVE at Sprint stores across the country for $99.99 (taxes excluded). Customers are required to subscribe to the AIRAVE enhanced coverage plan, which is priced at just $4.99 per month in addition to the customer's regular wireless voice plan. Customers who do not have one of Sprint's unlimited voice plans, such as Simply Everything, can get unlimited in-home calling by subscribing to the optional AIRAVE Unlimited Voice plan for an additional $10 per month for individuals or $20 per month for families. For more information, customers can visit www.sprint.com/airave
