Most carriers have these "femtocell" devices. I had one from Verizon when I lived in an area with poor service.
With Verizon, anyway, the catch is this: your home address had to have bad service, having bad service at work alone did not qualify me for a free device.
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
