MetroPCS today said that it will require another four to six months of fine-tuning before voice over LTE (VoLTE) will be available in all 14 of its LTE markets. Speaking at an investor conference, MetroPCS CEO Roger Linquist said, "There are a number of changes that need to be made in base station optimization in Dallas." MetroPCS was the first U.S. carrier to launch VoLTE service, which went live in Dallas earlier this year. "This is not your grandfather's Buick. This is a different animal." Linquist also said that the company plans to update its LTE devices as it makes improvements to its LTE network, and hinted that the updates will include new features. "We think there's an opportunity for people to be assured that they won't have to discard their handset because there's a new technology coming in," he said. As the name implies, voice over LTE uses the LTE data network to conduct voice calls, rather than the legacy cellular network.
