Verizon Wireless will be releasing a new Network Extender femtocell that will finally be able to access 3G/EV-DO data. Like the previous Network Extender, it works by connecting to your home broadband connection. You can then use it to make and receive phone calls and text messages, and now, you can surf the Web with it as well.

According to Verizon Wireless, the 3G Network Extender has a 40-foot range and will work with up to six different Verizon Wireless devices. The unit costs around $249.99 upfront, but there's no monthly access fee to use it.
