Bharti Airtel recently started offering its users Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services in select states. The company on Monday told Press Trust of India (PTI) that they have expanded the service to Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. With the help of VoLTE users communicate on the LTE network using internet which is much better than the conventional 2G calling which took help of wires.
“We are delighted to announce the addition of VoLTE capabilities on our 4G network in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh as it enables high definition voice qualities and faster call set up time,”
Dharmender Khajuria, Chief Executive Officer, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, Bharti Airtel, told PTI.
With the help of Airtel VoLTE, users will be able to make high definition quality voice calls which the company guaranteed has a much faster call set up time than normal voice calls made on the 2G network.
“Airtel VoLTE will be available on popular 4G/LTE enabled mobile devices, which must have an Airtel 4G SIM. Customers can call any mobile, landline network using Airtel VoLTE. There will be no additional data charges for VoLTE and calls will be billed as per existing plan or packs benefits,”
It remains to see as to how people react to Airtel VoLTE, which might be extremely popular seeing the success that Reliance Jio was able to gain from it as it was the first cellular network provider to enable VoLTE. Other cellular network providers including Idea Cellular and Vodafone are also rumoured to be working on providing their users with VoLTE services.
