I should hopefully be getting a call back from 2nd line tech support about getting a femtocell.
A femtocell is all about providing a seamless service supporting sms, mms, calls and data as if you were still on the 'normal' network. Data isn't important as that'll go over wi-fi but calls and sms don't/can't currently.
What I really want to see is if Three's solution will actually would over PPPoE connections which Vodafone's sure signal box doesn't support. If it does this could be the answer for many rural customers that use alternative (fixed wireless) broadband due to no ADSL being available.
Oranges UMA is probably a mush better solution but not supported by my iPhone (only supported by a select few phones) and I'm still in contract with Three.
