AT&T’s Free MicroCell Campaign Is Awesome.

It’s not often that I’ve been known to praise AT&T for anything, but this time I think they deserve some recognition.  The other day, I received an email from AT&T stating that I was eligible for a free MicroCell.  What is a MicroCell you ask?  A MicroCell is essentially mini cell phone tower for your home/business.  It promises up to 5 bars (I have consistently had 5 bars at all times) at all times and so far in my experience it has delivered just that.
