    If you look on that link, at the specs, it has only one band: Band 48 (PrivateLTE).

    Just a clarification: MVNO's don't get VoLTE from the main carriers, they have to either deploy their own servers or pay carrier for it.
    Don't assume that because T-Mobile has VoLTE, the MVNO's will...

    I think that's true. VZW won't be bothered to have different levels of deprioritization for MVNO's.
