There have already been some pretty amusing/scary talks on compromising femtocells if you search youtube and the Black Hat conference archives. The things light up a VPN right back to the mothership, which is great for customer privacy, but not so great when you assume that no one could ever come upstream into the grand telco enterprise with nefarious purposes.

Can someone at Dayton confirm this, especially the price?  If it?s that high, I will continue to play with the lower-cost options.  It may be worth that (to government agencies and the independently wealthy), but that?s way beyond what I can/want to spend on a rig.
