AT&T Femto Twitter Leak Pulled
The Twitter posts Unstrung quoted in our original story have vanished since the article was posted yesterday afternoon. AT&T retail manager Gerald Turney had originally written a couple of posts about the long-awaited "Microcell" on September 16. (See Look for AT&T's Femto 'Soft Launch' Soon.) Turney had written that he attended a training session for "the mini cell tower in your house" in the morning. "AT&T 3G Microcell launching soon in a few locations in NC & GA," he wrote later that Wednesday.
These posts have now been expunged from Turney's page.
Nonetheless, an Unstrung source has already suggested that the 3G femtocell will see a soft launch in Seattle and San Antonio as well as other cities soon. AT&T has said previously that it is testing the boxes and expects to launch them nationwide by the end of the year. (See AT&T on Track for Femto Launch.)
