A base station selection method is disclosed to select between two base stations for connecting a mobile device in a wireless neighborhood to a network. The wireless neighborhood may support multiple carriers and multiple radio access technologies. The base station selection method performs mobility estimation of the mobile device, where possible, to perform cell selection, but is also capable of performing cell selection without knowing the mobility of the device. Considerations such as the battery level of the mobile device, traffic demands of the network, and load balancing of network resources are used to make optimal selections for the mobile device as it travels through the wireless neighborhood.
