According to a new survey conducted by financial analytics firm IHS Markit, 90 percent of wireless carriers already have successfully rolled out small cells, mainly in the form of outdoor installations in urban areas and also femtocell installations inside the homes of mobile users. As for the remaining 10 percent -- they have expressed plans to deploy small cells before the start of 2018.
It appears that Verizon Wireless is beginning to reverse its stance on the use of small cells. Back in March of 2012, the Big Red stated small cells would likely not have a big impact on the carrier's network.
Mobile device users in the city of San Francisco may soon find themselves enjoying much enhanced 4G network speeds in specific locations in the next few months. That is because Verizon Wireless is planning to lay down 400 small cells (pint-sized transmitters) all over certain neighborhoods in the Fog City, including South of Market (SoMa), Financial District, Market Street, and North Beach.
