These are small 3G (and possibly 4G) antennas aimed at increasing mobile coverage for a particular operator by using an individual’s ADSL, fiber or cable connection to carry calls.

The idea is far from new, and mobile operators have been pushing to make it happen for obvious reasons: it is cheap and easily deployed, that is, compared to the classic antennas."

It seems nice to have better 3G/4G signal in rural areas and dark corners, such has thick-walled buildings and possibly tunnels; however alot of issues are still left unresolved and could possibly lead to massive litigations and consumer backlash"
