We recently made some adjustments to allow AT&T microcells to work with the Exede network. This is a device you can purchase from your cell carrier that connects to your internet service and improves cell service in your home.

We have not heard of any issues with Verizon's version of this, the "network extender," or any other carriers. If anyone is using one of these and has some feedback on how well it works over the Exede network, we'd love to hear from you.

Alex, as I replied on the other forum, I have the Verizon Samsung network extender. I have been using it on Exede with no issues at all.

Hi Alex,

Shoot, I recently sold my AT&T Microcell.

On a related note, I am thinking of switching to Republic Wireless which uses VoIP when under a WiFi network. I'll post my results if/when I end up switching.
