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.
So just had a representative from sprint come to my house asking wear wireless service we have and then said t mobile and sprint are combining this summer. Kept saying that they are dumping a ton of money in the network and he could save us on our monthly bill. I basically told him I know what's going on and there is no reason to switch. Plus he said he could lower our bill. Which I really doubt it. My question is why are they doing door to door sales and wouldn't it be beneficial to get at&t and Verizon users? That was a first for me.
I tooed my phone (LG V30+) this weekend and I noticed that the ##data# screen now shows "Enable All" instead of the weird letter salad which it showed previously. Not sure what this means exactly but at least now I can use NetworkSignalGuru. On that note, it confirmed what everyone else stated which was the B25 was 15x15. As for the other details, it appears to also be max 64QAMx64QAM and 2x2 MIMO which is pretty impressive because the numbers I was getting were near the theoretical limit for that combination (112.5/56.3 and I got 112/42.3).
