Hi, will skinny customers be able to benefit from spark VoLTE since they share the same network?

Yes, not launched yet though.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

If you read through the Spark thread on VoLTE, you'll notice some mentions of this coming to Skinny. So hopefully sometime soon I guess? :)

Just remember network being capable of supporting such functionality, and everything being ready for it are two very different things.

 

 

 

stuff like training, processes and tools are all extremely important to making it a success.

Same here, waiting. Currently Spark has a limited list of VoLTE supported phones. It will be great if they support more phone models.

alot of the issue with VoLTE support is, it has to be enabled on the device software...

My Moto G4 Plus has a switch for VOLTE that is currently greyed out. Hoping that when Skinny turns it on that the switch comes to life.

Same on my Nokia 8.1. But the OEM requires to incorporate mobile providers settings in their phones for LTE services to work. Not sure how its done, I believe it depends on the MNO's preferences in providing their network settings to OEM's.

 

But now GSMA has started a service called "Network Settings Exchange" which will put an end to all these issues in the near future.

In the participants list NZ mobile operators are nowhere seen. Hopefully they will sign up very soon

Correct. otherwise you can root and force it.. but that's pretty ugly and unsupported.

First i've personally heard of this. it's iver Rel 14 or Rel 15 that adds such functionality to the LTE Spec too though.
