Yes, a AT&T Microcell. It is basically a mini cell phone antenna just for you. You need a 3g/4g phone and high speed internet. They cost $200 however you might be able to get customer care or company owned store to give you one. Being nice and asking is the best way to get it for free. There is no monthly fees.

Mike, you came to the right place. The device you are referring to is called a Microcell. You can get one at your local AT&T COR Location or by contacting AT&T Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500. The device retails for $199.99. I would suggest calling your local AT&T store prior to visiting as inventory is not always available. Good luck.
