modern cell division

So the word today is that wireless providers are going to offer cell base stations for the home or office which connect to their voice networks via your broadband connection ... for a moderate fee. Despite any mention of a specific carrier or a time frame for this upcoming offering there seems to be some moderate interest. I gotta say I'm interested to see how it plays it should they decide to try it. With the the likes of skype, gtalk, and askterisk growing steadily and becoming easier to use I can see this becoming a commodity hardware offering that would allow people to become their own cell providers. What's next, GNU cellular service? How about a FON style community of "Social Routers" for wireless and cellular communication?

Hey Rogers, we're coming to get you!
