Meet pCell – an innovative cell technology, which promises to bring the maximum potential speed of an LTE network at your disposal. Yes, you got that right! Thanks to pCell, the speed of your wireless service won't suffer when a lot of users share the signal, broadcasted from the same cell...

LOOKS REALLY NICE,CLEAN,NOW WE JUST NEED SOME ADVANCEMENT IN BATTERY TECH

Adjust your settings and use cached music instead of streaming. Battery disaster overted. If that's not enough then you should probably go outside more often anyways.

Google & Apple will definitely try to acquire Artemis.Great tech.hats off.

I'll believe it when I see it and when others verify it is doing exactly what he says it is doing, hopefully that will be today when he demos it at Columbia University.

Is this reducing the amount of people using the frequency range so that others can get more download bandwidth?

I guess I have to wait until I can afford LTE to enjoy this

This sounds much like what other companies are trying to do with pico and micro cells. I have also heard of Alcatel-Lucent light radio technology, beamforming and how 4x4 MIMO will optimize LTE networks. Basically this technology is an extension of this in a smaller package (and for less customers per antenna).
I do not trust what they are calling the p-cell technology, as I think that it is really something else that they are coining a phrase for. What I know is that even this video states that there needs to be multiple of these antennas to achieve these results, so this technology even if it is as good as it is stating, will only be useful in stadiums/subways/and any other extremely congested areas. The fact that these radios purposely interfere with each other will cause other issues, when someone walks by several antennas will there be a smooth seamless handoff's, and how will it interplay with the macro networks.
Other technologies can handle more connections simultaneously and keep throughput high enough to stream multiple high definition movies at once, and will seamlessly handoff to the macro network. This would be more impressive if they showed a live demonstration of speed tests all slowing when on the traditional networks, and then showing the same exact demo with their new equipment.
