next big noticeable step

Actually they will be rolling out LTE over 1700/2100 MHz later this year. I call that a big noticeable step before VoLTE in 2014.

Particularly since their 700MHz network is starting to creak under the load of 50% of their data traffic, at least in some areas.

How can that be? Karl and others here clearly state that spectrum shortages are a lie. /sarcasm

Anyway yeah that's why they plan on doing 1700/2100 in those markets. Of course you need devices that can actually take advantage of those frequencies. Also getting people off of unlimited will help.

Splitting cells would fix the problem too. But that's more expensive.
