Hey T-Mobile, AT&T says... "I Can Do It Too"

AT&T is taking a page, no wait; a chapter out of T-Mobile's UNcarrier move... in fact, it looks like it is in direct response to T-Mobile's latest announcement.  While T-Mobile is not the only US carrier with the capacity to offer WiFi calling, it definitely beat all of the other carriers to the punch, implementing WiFi calling to the masses like no other carrier has, to date.

Well, CBS partner site CNET is saying that Ralph de la Vega, the CEO of AT&T Mobility, says that his company will, too, offer WiFi calling, but will wait until next year to launch their initiative.  The reason is that AT&T has not began offering VoLTE (Voice Over LTE) to scale the project initiative accordingly.

Some analysts would say that since AT&T's network is not suffering as much as T-Mobile in the HSPA/4G department, AT&T is not in as much a hurry to implement this initiative.  We like to have fun and say that they don't want to appear to be copying T-Mobile's strategy, which we really think they are doing... he he he.... ;)
