AT&T, Sprint to Test ‘Small Cell’ Technology – To Improve and Expand Network Reach Indoors and Out
AT&T says they’re getting close to testing “small cell” technology aimed at expanding the company’s network coverage. According to AT&T’s John Donavan, AT&T will begin testing the technology later this year and early next. The small cell or picocell technology will be installed on lamposts to help expand outdoor coverage — or indoors to help indoor coverage. Sprint also says they plan to launch LTE picocells later on this year to help improve coverage of their as-yet-unlaunched LTE network. Sprint’s initial focus will be on improving indoor coverage inside of large venues, with outdoor small cell technology coming down the road.
