History

SFR chose to work with NEC and Ubiquisys and launched their domestic femtocell service in November 2010 with a blaze of publicity. Read our views on the SFR femtocell launch from that time.

Product Features

Based on NEC/Ubiquisys femtocell solution

  • One-off price 99 Euros with no ongoing fees
  • A charge of 6 Euros applies each time you want to change any existing entries in the white list of permitted phones (adding new numbers is free).
  • Small, high performance, low power unit
  • Works with broadband from any supplier at speeds as low at 512kbit/s
  • You are not allowed to move it (say to a second home)
  • Several broadband internet modems and specific 3G phone models are declared incompatible with the femtocell, suggesting there has been extensive field testing
  • They make a big deal of not co-locating the femtocell within 1.5 metres of a WiFi access point.
