New Delhi: Vodafone has announced rollout of its Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services in Mumbai, Delhi-NCR and Gujarat to offer high quality voice calls with faster call set-up time to users.
Voice over Long-Term Evolution or VoLTE is a standard for high-speed wireless communication for mobile phones, that offers superior call quality and improved coverage and connectivity.
Vodafone VoLTE service will be launched in Karnataka and Kolkata next, and thereafter across India in a phased manner in the coming months, the company said in a statement.
Vodafone has said that SuperNet 4G customers can access Vodafone VoLTE for no additional charges and all calls will be billed as per existing plan or pack benefits.
Commenting on the development, Sunil Sood, Managing Director and CEO of Vodafone India, said, "We will be expanding the Vodafone VoLTE experience in several more circles shortly".
Vodafone users need to upgrade their smartphones to the latest version of OS. They also need to ensure that they have inserted a Vodafone 4G SIM on their smartphones. In case of dual-SIM handsets, the Vodafone 4G SIM needs to be inserted in the data SIM slot or slot 1 and also network mode has to be set as '4G/3G/2G (Auto)'.
