At this stage they followed by Verizon, then AT&T, with Sprint bringing up the rear will be set within 2-3 years. Who would of thought that a prepaid had it in them. Oh, I forgot about T-Mobile.

What is it they say? Innovation spawns out of necessity? Metro, with limited spectrum, can benefit greatly from a pure LTE spectrum, the rest of the carriers will also benefit, but most have the spectrum to make a gradual transition. I just wonder what kind of nightmare it would be to roam when your network is pure VoLTE...
