Legere tweets about VoLTE in San Francisco

Legere tweets about VoLTE in San Francisco
T-Mobile CEO John Legere sent out a tweet on Thursday, talking about T-Mobile's VoLTE service. This service allows customers of the nation's fourth largest carrier to make/take calls over the carrier's 4G LTE network. Having recently celebrated his birthday, the executive noted that T-Mobile's engineers have been working overtime to get the service going in San Francisco.

So far, T-Mobile has officially acknowledged that VoLTE is up and running in Seattle. But those in the know say that the service has been spotted in markets like New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, California, Dallas and Houston. T-Mobile has three phones that support VoLTE, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the Samsung Galaxy Light and the LG G Flex.

Besides the tweet from Legere, in the slideshow below you will find screenshots from a T-Mobile customer in Fremont, California, showing that VoLTE is active in that market as well.

I wonder how many years it'll be before there is high quality voice across many devices across many telecom networks. Sometimes I think 10-15 years, other times "never". Mussolini at least got the trains to run on time. With the US and its Fascism 2.0, nothing works together. It's all balkanized and broken to better support the profits of the corporations and their fiefdoms.

In the US and other developed countries it will only be a few years before it is the standard. Worldwide it will easily be 10+ years.

I wonder what Sprint will do with this once they buy Tmo
