Verizon, AT&T Working On Intercarrier VoLTE

Verizon Wireless and AT&T today said the companies are working together to make interoperable VoLTE calls a reality. Both carriers offer VoLTE to their subscribers, but those calls can only pass between two VoLTE-enabled devices covered by an LTE network run by the same carrier. In other words, Verizon customers can only call Verizon customers via VolTE and AT&T customers can only call AT&T customers. Engineers from both companies are working to create a set of requirements needed and then plan to move to field trials before a full deployment. Once VoLTE calls are interoperable between the two carriers, they'll work on other services, such as video calls and rich messaging. The two said customers can expect to see VoLTE interoperability for voice calls between Verizon and AT&T in 2015. T-Mobile also offers VoLTE to its customers, but it appears as though the Uncarrier has been left out of this partnership for now.

How is VoLTE doing?

Can anyone that has used VoLTE comment on the quality? Does it drop calls or cut in out? Does it sound much better?
I have it with Verizon and it sounds amazing. It's definitely off-putting at first because it sounds so different, but once you adjust to it, it's great. It is very clear and it sounds as though the person is standing next to you. It's to the point no...
Roommate uses VoLTE on my account on her Galaxy Note 3 on TMobile and it works for all calls to all networks, and its fast setup is great, sound quality to other TMo customers is awesome sounds like they are whispering in your ear, but clearly.
Sounds like my quality audio. Only thing downside I noticed is when you are 1-2 bars of service, the call tends to cut out a lot more over trading calls.
