However, S5GRU blog confirms through an anonymous “high-level” Sprint executive, that VoLTE is currently in the “programming stage” and that the carrier is working with both domestic and international carriers. They will also be working with device and network vendors addressing any support and hardware issues. Once this stage is completed, Sprint will move into the field implementation testing (FIT) phase with the goal of identifying any issues that may delay final implementation prior to equipment development. Sprint VoLTE FITs are planned for Kansas, the greater Chicago area and Virginia.

 

One of the overwhelming challenges of VoLTE implementation is that when carriers adopt different approaches to the technology, the customer experience suffers. Incompatibility issues affect customers as they roam from one carrier’s area to another. In order to prevent this from being an issue for Sprint customers, the company has placed a premium on partnering with smaller carriers. This focus on interoperability seems to be the key to their plans. Sprint has lined up partnerships with a number of rural carriers, including one with VTel Wireless announced in June. VTel plans to offer VoLTE devices mid-2015, which may indicate that Sprint is planning to roll out the service in the middle of next year.

At least they got the link right.

Not only did they get the link right, they didn't bury it with a thousand VIAs so you never end up finding the real source.

"Maggie has always been interested in gadgets and new technology... with the Nexus 4 she carries."

 

Can you trust her as a writer when it says she's interested in new technology when she carries a Nexus 4 as her daily driver? Seems a bit odd to me, since a two year old device is hardly on the cutting edge.

Does the current nv support it or do they need to rebuild again?   

 

Rebuild what again?

He is asking if Sprint will have to do another "rip and replace" project in order to do VoLTE. And to answer his question, no, they wouldn't.

I thought so, but didn't want to assume.

I interpreted that to be a joke about NV support for "5G".  ^_^

    • Their offers have been crap recently, so this is just more evidence to not buy from T-Mobile. 
    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.  
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
