Nextel goes WiFi

After losing its reign on Push-To-Talk (PTT), Nextel has found another way to make its service stand out--coverage inside your building. They have partnered with a company called RadioFrame to basically build base stations that are small cell towers AND offer WiFi connectivity. It's aimed to provide better coverage inside buildings, but still interact seamlessly with the rest of the network.
