New Delhi: Telecom operator Vodafone India on Tuesday said it will roll out voice over LTE (VoLTE) 4G service from January.
“The introduction of Voice over LTE (VoLTE) will enhance customer experience with HD quality calling and offer our customers newer possibilities. Vodafone VoLTE is an important step towards introducing futuristic technology enhancing our Data Strong Network,” Sunil Sood, the managing director and chief executive officer (CEO) of Vodafone India, said in a statement.
In the first phase, Vodafone VoLTE service will be available in Mumbai, Gujarat, Delhi, Karnataka, and Kolkata and will be extended across the country in a short time.
Mukesh Ambani-controlled Reliance Jio was the first firm to start VoLTE service which facilitate phone calls using Internet protocol. Airtel started rolling out VoLTE in the second half of 2017.
