Some things don't make sense.
After looking at the Alcatel article, it appears it's referring "metrocells", which would be comparable to microcells or picocells, which have long been used to support small areas, such as inside buildings or shadowed areas.
My first impression is that the CNN Money reporter is claiming more than is possible. According to the Alcatel site, that cube is closer to a WiFi access point, in that it's a low power device, intended to serve a small area. It augments the big towers, rather than replace them.
