AT&T supposedly has one coming out soon.  They don't use RF to connect to a
nearby cell site, instead they use your broadband as the backhaul to the

I'm interested in using one, since my AT&T cells don't work in my house.
But, I'm not sure what the cost is.

Yea, the lingo is a little warped....

  Home Node B (HNB)
  In May 2008, the 3GPP completed a feasibility study of femtocell network
architectures. Architectures including Cellular Base Station, Collapsed
Stack and UMA/GAN were evaluated. As a result, the 3GPP is pursuing a new
Home Node B (or HNB) reference architecture which builds on elements from
both the Collapsed Stack and UMA/GAN approaches.

  As the 3GPP completes the formal standard towards at the end of 2008,
vendors and operators will migrate to support this new architecture for 3G

  Note the 3GPP refers to 3G femtocells as Home Node Bs (HNBs)."
