    Frankly telling I have no idea about Femto cell. But while reading this article it seems that it has a good contact with VoIP. Its truly good enough to know about this.

    ‘Bout time Sprint gets thru testing, Verizon will have already launch there’s along with nationwide ads. Just like unlimited plans. It’s good to have new technology working as perfect as possible. But come on. What else do they got to loose. Take a chance.

    Sprint will let another opportunity get away from them, just like they did with their “testing” of their unlmited plan until Verizon came out with it and guess what, Sprint followed within a few days and lost the marketing edge.

I’ll keep my eyes open, as I am very interested in the technology.
