    Q&A: The Castle in T-Mobile's LTE Network


    Key points with T-Mobile moving toward a future 100% LTE network;

    "T-Mobile currently covers around 190 million POPs ( Point of Presence) with its 700 MHz spectrum "

    "Castle said around 10-plus percent of T-Mobile's calls run on its new Voice over LTE technology. "It's slowly growing and it will accelerate quickly," he said. "It's mostly about handset adoption--getting them all enabled. Our launch with the iPhone was a big help. Our work with Samsung on the Galaxy line up is also helpful."

    Also, this quote "RCS is soon, very soon"

    Rich Communication Services (RCS) is backed by the GSM Association and offers subscribers an innovative set of features that enhance the capabilities of SMS and MMS technologies. Subscribers can conduct individual and group chat sessions and exchange images or videos during voice calls or chats. Messaging sessions are effortlessly launched from the address book, which contains traditional contact information as well as enhanced information, including communication capabilities like chat, video/image share, and file transfer. With RCS, operators can combat increasingly popular “over-the-top” (OTT) services like Skype and Facebook Messenger.

    Main features of RCS are:

    Enhanced Phonebook: service capabilities and enhanced contacts information such as presence and service discovery.
    Enhanced Messaging: enables a large variety of messaging options including chat, emoticons, location share and file sharing.
    Enriched Calls: enables multimedia content sharing during a voice call, video call and video sharing (see what I see)

    Just to point out, your quoted text does not say anything about WiFi calling, just LTE and VoLTE.

    Sorry I didn't want to quote everything that was inside the article that said; "WiFi calling is used by customers that see benefit from it, and we have over 7 million customers using it, and they are quite happy with it, but we never expect all our customers to use it.".

    What really happen was I originally linked this T-Mobile counts 7M customers using Wi-Fi calling till I realized that the linked Fiercewirless story was just a re-branded shortern story based on the T-Mobile Q&A interview in the Lightreading story. So after I made the headlines of this thread I replaced the Fiercewirless story link with the Lightreading that had more detail on RCS from the T-Mobile interview. I wanted to give credit to Lightreading that did the real interview with T-Mobile.
