Vodafone 4G VoLTE Now Available to Users in Delhi, Mumbai and More
Vodafone is the latest telecom operator after Reliance Jio and Airtel to switch to the next-level telecom standard.
Vodafone last week announced the rollout of its Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services in Mumbai, Delhi-NCR and Gujarat which offers high quality voice calls with faster call set-up time to users.
After its initial rollout is completed, Vodafone VoLTE service will be launched in Karnataka and Kolkata, and thereafter, across India in a phased manner in the coming months, the company said in a statement.
Vodafone is the third telecom operator, after Reliance Jio and Airtel, to switch to the latest telecom technology. Unlike previous years, 4G VoLTE ensures both voice calling and data are running on the same bandwidth.
This also implies that in order to make/receive calls on 4G VoLTE, you’ll have to keep the mobile data switched on at all times. But unlike Reliance Jio, which only caters to 4G network, Vodafone users will benefit from staying connected with its expansive 2G/3G connectivity across the country.
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 4G customers can avail the VoLTE for no additional charges and all calls will be billed as per existing plan or pack benefits, Vodafone said announcing the rollout of its VoLTE services across Mumbai, Delhi-NCR and Gujarat (in Surat and Ahmedabad).
Commenting on the development, Sunil Sood, Managing Director and CEO of Vodafone India, said, "We will be expanding the Vodafone VoLTE experience in several circles shortly".
Customers can access Vodafone 4G VoLTE on all VoLTE-enabled devices, from brands like OnePlus, Xiaomi, Samsung, Huawei and HMD Global’s Nokia phones, with more to be added in the coming months.
