Verizon's network extender (femtocell) I have never had more than one bar when inside the house, but outside the coverage has been mostly good. So yesterday, I ordered Verizon's network extender to finally give myself cell coverage when inside my house. The device, also known as a femtocell is designed to give you cell phone usage when inside your home. When you are within range, (They say it covers 5000 square feet which is probably a bit optimistic) it routes your calls through your broadband connection and out to Verizon's network. When You leave the range of the device, it is supposed to switch seamlessly to your local cell tower. The package arrived today. It comes with the device, power supply, gps antenna extension cable and network cable. The gps antenna needs to be near a window for everything to work. Verizon states that the GPS is needed to assist with E-911 calls, and to confirm you are using the device in a licensed area. Setup took all of 5 minutes and power-up and sync took another 30 minutes. There are 4 lights on the device, all four lights need to be blue for it to work, Power, SYS, GPS, and WAN. After powering the device on and plugging into my network PWR and WAN turned blue immediately, GPS took about 10 minutes to turn blue and the SYS light justs kept alternating red-blue. The documentation tells you the SYS light will be red (bad) or blue (good) but did not cover blinking. A call to Tech Support infiormed me that it could take up to 30 more minutes after the GPS light turned blue for the SYS light to follow. just as the tech finished telling me this, I got my blue light and my phone went from one bar to a full 4 bars. Walking around the house, my coverage decreased as expected the further away from the femtocell I got, and dropped to 2 bars out in my garage on the opposite side of the house, Sound quality is very good. The device does what it promised. It is not a perfect solution, but it solved my primary problem of little to no phone coverage in the house. What it does not solve is full data coverage. For this I will need to add a wireless card. This is not a cheap solution at $250 or possibly less if you beg, but missed calls to me can be even more expensive since I use the phone for business calls and we have multiple phones that will share it. Time will tell how this solution works out, but so far I'm happy with it.
