AT&T is testing its new 3G MicroCell service in select markets. The 3G MicroCell allows one to have a 3G access point in their home. This should yield 5-bar coverage in places where AT&T’s coverage is spotty. The device requires a broadband connection of some sort and will support up to 4 simultaneous phones.

According to TUAW, the device is rumored to retail for about $150 and there will be no monthly subscription charges.

There has been no shortage of complaints about AT&T’s wireless service lately. Perhaps this is AT&T’s answer to those problems. Too bad it will cost AT&T customers more money and only benefit them when they are near their 3G access point.
