ABSTRACT
The article focuses on femtocell, a small cellular base stations that supply enhanced coverage at the far edge of the network to let mobile service providers shore up their in-residence coverage without needing expensive towers. It states that they also help relieve broadband wireless traffic congestion with the in-residence wireline broadband connection. Femtos, however have two major problems, they only work on the wireless provider's spectrum and they are expensive in the whole retail scheme.
