In Reply to: Low signal area by livesinadeadarea
I have Verizon "service", but very little signal at my house. Not enough phone signal to make/get reliable calls, or reliably use 3G. So I had to get a "Verizon Network Extender with 3G", and now I have enough phone and 3G strength for my iPhone to actually be usable.
So here's what I pay:
1. Plenty of bucks for Verizon "service".
2. $250 for Verizon's femtocell (Verizon Network Extender).
3. Since the Network Extender requires an internet connection, it is also using up part of my internet service from Comcast. Not much, though, but without this I couldn't use the Network Extender.
So I'm paying Verizon lots of bucks for their "service" (which is pretty much nothing), an extra $250 to extend their network to my house, and I would have to have internet access just for the Network Extender if I didn't already have it.
I'd say this generally sucks, but then so does Verizon. If I'm paying Verizon for service, they should give me the Network Extender that actually supplies the service free of charge.
So it goes.
