History

Telefonica have not adopted residential femtocells very widely and this has mostly been restricted to their O2 subsiduary.

The Guardian newspaper reported in 2008 plans for a large early femtocell trial in the UK, following those already conducted in Czech Republic (where O2 operates both fixed and mobile networks) and Spain (within Telefonica's own labs).

They had a particular focus on office buildings, as stated in their quarterly newsletter

Telefonica Spain

Telefonica (branded as Movistar in many countries) launched commercial service in Spain in July 2010, offering a femtocell product for  residential customers called "My Mobile Coverage".

Huawei were revealed as the vendor. Their standard residential femtocell supports up to 4 concurrent calls. It was later revealed that Alcatel-Lucent are also providing their femtocell solution in parallel.

The service costs 9 Euros/month. A DSL broadband line from Telefonica is required and it must have a minimum download speed of 3Mbit/s.
