Vodafone has something new to offer this January 2018. The company is all set to launch its 4G VoLTE services in January 2018. Quite significantly, this step comes right after when the state-run telecom operator BSNL has confirmed that they would be bringing 4G services across the country, starting with Kerala and then followed by Odisha.
So, in lieu of this Vodafone confirmed the roll-out of its VoLTE services beginning on January 2018 adding that it would be available across India, starting with Mumbai, Gujarat, Delhi, Karnataka, and Kolkata.
So, further commenting on this measure, Vodafone India Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Sunil Sood regarded that, “Vodafone is getting Future Ready with the advent of newer technologies and digital services. 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”.
With this initiation of 4G VoLTE services, Vodafone regarded that its users would be able to make HD quality voice calls along with faster call set up time. Initially, the 4G VoLTE services by Vodafone would be available in Mumbai, Gujarat, Delhi, Karnataka, and Kolkata, later extending all across the country in the forthcoming days.
The telco also added that Vodafone SuperNet 4G customers would experience VoLTE services for free. Vodafone’s VoLTE services would also allow Vodafone SuperNet 4G customers to experience HD quality crystal clear voice with super call connect time. In other words, Vodafone 4G customers would no longer have to pay to avail VoLTE services. So right now, to use Vodafone’s VoLTE services, all that the user would need is a handset supporting Vodafone VoLTE and a 4G SIM.
To be more specific, the introduction of VoLTE would allow Vodafone to free up it’s 3G and 2G network that is currently being used to offer voice service. Analysts have regarded these networks to be reformed for offering 4G data services and would give the telco more airwaves to meet the increasing demand for mobile broadband.
The telecom major also regarded that it has built a robust and resilient data-strong network of 1,40,000 sites that enable better call quality and mobile internet experience to its customers. Lastly, they added that “This will be a key differentiator for Vodafone in providing seamless connectivity and experience to its customers.”
