Concepts and technologies described herein relate to an enhancement to an access network discovery and selection function (“ANDSF”) with a cell-type management object (“MO”) within an ANDSF MO tree. According to one aspect disclosed herein, a system including an ANDSF can generate a policy for network selection. The policy can include network selection criteria based upon a cell-type. The cell-type may be a small cell cell-type, a macro cell cell-type, or a multi-standard metro cell (“MSMC”) cell-type. The network selection criteria can be further based upon WI-FI availability. The system can send the policy to a mobile device. The mobile device can utilize the policy to select a network. In some embodiments, the network selection criteria includes network load information, local device information, user profile information, or some combination thereof.
