Hallelujah: The iPhone Gets AT&T MicroCell Support

Illustration for article titled Hallelujah: The iPhone Gets ATT MicroCell Support

If there's any phone in the whole world coupled with any service in the whole world that could benefit from femtocell technology, it's the iPhone on AT&T. Luckily, the iPhone has received an update.


Through an iTunes "carrier update" last Friday, the iPhone has been made compatible with AT&T's upcoming MicroCell—well, a .png file was added to signal MicroCell connectivity. The MicroCell is essentially a mini 3G tower for your home (connecting through your internet connection) that boosts your reception like a Wi-Fi router. And like we said, as much as we love the iPhone, it's pretty much the poster child for femtocell technology. [The iPhone Blog]
