Optus has commenced the commercial pilot of 3G Femtocell device for Australian consumers. Named as 3G Home Zone, Optus is offering it for consumers and small business customers who want an alternative voice solution for the home or small office.

“Australia’s first commercial Femtocell pilot will provide valuable feedback from our customers on the multiple benefits of this technology. The device will be initially available in selected Optus stores in Sydney, Brisbane, Wollongong and the Gold Coast,” said Gavin Williams, Optus Consumer Marketing Director.

Optus 3G Home Zone will allow four simultaneous users to reliably make and receive calls and access 3G data services like email, internet browsing and social networking sites within a 30 metre radius of the Home Zone unit. The Optus 3G Home Zone can be easily activated through an online portal where customers can add and remove friends, family and colleagues to ensure everyone has a secure and dedicated signal within the home or small office environment.
