Sprint ships 3G Airave femtocells for free

Sprint has now begun shipping the Airave Access Point femtocell. The new version carries EVDO and can handle 3G data for homes and phones without Wi-Fi. They continue to provide CDMA for phone calls.

Unlike AT&T, Sprint said customers who qualify for the service will receive the femtocells for free; the only requirement to avoid paying extra is to return the device when cancelling service.

AT&T offers a similar product, the 3G MicroCell, though it costs $150 and a further $20 per month plan. Verizon has a femtocell that supports only CDMA networks, but it has plans for a 3G device later this year. [via FierceWireless]
