At first, VoLTE will be used to deliver "Rich Communications Services" (which look like something similar to what Voice over IP/Video over IP outfits offer today) rather than completely replacing narrowband voice. It will be awhile before Verizon is willing to commit to that, due in part to LTE outages in late 2011.
On the flip side is MetroPC, which has pushed VoLTE as hard as it could.
Then there's Sprint, which will stick to voice over 1x for the foreseeable future, but routes Direct Connect over IP. Sprint's latest DC incarnation seems quite similar to one facet of RCS over LTE.
DOj doesn’t deal with concession it’s the FCC.. there is even a huge penalty to pay of some sort if the new tmo doesn’t apply by the terms reached.. If the reports are true and not put out by career people that are salty.. than the DOJ really just can’t accept the us going from 4 to 3 carries .. is that a strong enough case to hold up in court? Maybe not, but it will sure make sprint/tmo think about if they wanna spend more time on this in court or do they back out
Penalties for broken promises
So what happens if the New T-Mobile fails to deliver on any of the obligations outlined here? In their letter to the FCC, T-Mobile and Sprint say they'll agree to an "unprecedented" amount of verification and enforcement. "Failure to meet New T-Mobile obligations will trigger severe, increasing, and continuing voluntary contributions that will make failure prohibitively expensive and incentivize New T-Mobile to meet its commitments," the companies said
