We recently heard that AT&T is on track with its femtocell
, the 3G MicroCell
, with its deployment due to start by the end of the year. Surprisingly, however, Sprint’s
Mathew Oommen, VP of device and technology development, has now reminded that his company was first to set up 2G femtocell (AIRAVE
) and will be
the first to offer a commercial 3G solution, informs Unstrung. Sprint’s device will extend its CDMA EV-DO Rev.
