Sprint AIRAVE launch

Sprint has officially launched AIRAVE, a base station built by Samsung. Now being sold in portions of Denver and Indianapolis, Sprint claims that the product is the first commercially available femtocell, which works with a Sprint phone and a broadband connection to improve the reception of in-home wireless calls.

More crucially for some customers, calling within range of the AIRAVE is unlimited aside from the costs of the AIRAVE itself and a wireless voice plan. Moving out of range transfers callers back to the Sprint PCS network. An AIRAVE costs $50, plus $15 per month for individual subscribers, or $30 a month for families. Sprint plans to to cover all of Denver, Indianapolis and Nashville by the end of 2007, and expand to the rest of the country during 2008.
