Femtocell

We are with Orange and suddenly are provider at the top of my iPad, phone and Mac is Femtocell Orange. I believe Femtocell is some sort of booster. Can someone explain this to me in idiot terms. Also is the change likely to have affected our landline?

Thanks SmileyG I have read that and other info but it all seems to point to femtocell being a booster box. We have no such box and it even appears as my provider when using my iPad away from home on cellular.

from Helen:When I saw "Femtocell" I immediately thought it was a sort of Well Womens Clinic, and when Sue mentioned "the change".......
