Airtel Launches 4G VoLTE Services In India
Starting with Mumbai, Airtel has said that VoLTE will be available on 4G LTE enabled smartphones carrying 4G SIM cards. Along with HD voice calls, it will also offer faster call setup times.
Finally Some Competition For Jio
Until now, Jio has been the sole telecom player to offer VoLTE services over its super-advanced LTE-only network in India. That is all set to change as now Airtel and later, other players launch their VoLTE services. Competition is always good for consumers.
There will be no additional data charges for VoLTE and calls will be billed as per existing plans or pack benefits.
Airtel is claiming to offer seamless connectivity enabled by its far-reaching 4G network connectivity. Unlike Jio, Airtel has its 3G and 2G networks to fall back on whenever there is no 4G connectivity. This will ensure that users remain connected at all times.
