U.S. Cellular has finally set a target date for testing VoLTE. The carrier said its main LTE network deployment is now complete, a major milestone it wanted to pass before moving on to new technology. The company is modifying its network in several markets across northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin to prepare for the trial, which will begin some time during the fourth quarter. Based on comments made by CEO Ken Meyers during the company's recent earnings call, U.S. Cellular has not finalized a key LTE roaming deal it announced several months ago. The roaming service was expected to be operational at this point. Last, U.S. Cellular said it discontinued its loyalty program on Sept. 1. Any reward points not redeemed by customers before Sept. 1 expired. U.S. Cellular admitted that, after five years, the program's usefulness had run its course.
