Sprint's 'Airwave' Kicks Up Cell Signals
If you're a Sprint customer (I'm very sorry) and you have a hard time getting a signal in your home, this might be the answer you're looking for. The new Sprint Airwave is a wireless station that boosts the cell signal indoors up to 5000 feet. It's available for purchase in Denver and Indianapolis, and will be available for all Sprint's network in 2008.
It works with your existing broadband network, and sends calls over the Internet, instead of Sprint's wireless network. After the user leaves the area, the cell phone switches back to the Sprint network. The cost for the Airwave is $49.99 and subscribers will pay $15 a month for unlimited use. Unfortunately the Nextel cell phones don't work with this, but all other Sprint phones do.
