They have partnered with a company called RadioFrame to basically build base stations that are small cell towers AND offer WiFi connectivity. Itís aimed to provide better coverage inside buildings, but still interact seamlessly with the rest of the network."<br /><br />I can't imagine this being something that consumers or even small businesses could afford, but it is certainly an interesting idea.
