VoLTE

3G is dead (dying), long live LTE for Verizon?

They said it back in 2011, but now it seems like the start of the slow (and we mean slow) death of 3G is upon us, at least as far as Verizon is concerned. It seems that the carrier has been cannibalizing its old CDMA EV-DO systems to make way for a third distinct LTE network, after launching the first two back in 2010.

Verizon and AT&T to offer VoLTE interoperability by 2015

Voice over LTE (VoLTE) technology is certainly an intriguing proposition and many are predicting it will be the main way to digitally communicate in a few years time. But one probable problem that users will encounter is that you are still limited to making voice and HD video calls within your network only. That is about to change as two of the US' biggest carriers, AT&T and Verizon announced that they will be offering VoLTE interoperability by 2015, a move that might just get people (well, at least subscribers to the two networks) on board with this all-IP technology.

Comcast may be teaming up with Verizon for VoIP service

A new report suggests Comcast may be involving themselves in the mobile carrier game. The cable company, lamented by many for their ongoing attempt to purchase Time Warner Cable, may be working on VoIP service on the back of their wireless offerings for the home. While the service is said to be dependent on WiFi, Comcast may have other plans for the service as well.
