U.S. Cellular to Trial VoLTE
U.S. Cellular said it will begin testing VoLTE in a handful of markets later this year. The company is focusing on completing its LTE deployment, but will trial the service in two or three unnamed markets. U.S. Cellular said it wants to ensure a high level of service is available before a full commercial launch to its entire LTE footprint. The company has previously committed to offering LTE to 93% of its customers by the end of the first quarter of this year. U.S. Cellular did not say which devices will be involved with its VoLTE trials, nor exactly when they will begin.
