Idea Cellular today announced VoLTE (Voice over LTE) service rollout for customers across Maharashtra, Gujarat, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh circle.
Idea customers across these markets can avail the revolutionary VoLTE technology starting 2nd May, 2018.
Idea VoLTE delivers High Definition voice services over 4G/LTE network which makes voice sound more natural as compared to a standard voice call, while eliminating background noise. It also offers faster call connection and better battery utilisation. VoLTE enables users to automatically be routed to 3G/2G when they move out of 4G network using Single Radio Voice Call Continuity (SRVCC), thus ensuring continuous call connectivity. Users will be able to call all mobile and landline networks using Idea’s VoLTE service.
Speaking on the commercial launch, Sashi Shankar, Chief Marketing Officer, Idea Cellular said, “The launch of Idea VoLTE is testimony to our commitment to digitally connect customers, and a major milestone in Idea’s mobility journey. We aim to provide a better and richer call quality experience to our customers through this revolutionary new technology.”
“Idea is partnering with several handset manufacturers to ensure availability of a wide range of Idea VoLTE capable devices in the market”, added Shankar.
Idea VoLTE will be available on Honor 5C, Honor 6X, Honor 7X, Honor View10, Honor 9 lite and Honor 9i handsets. Xiaomi Redmi4, Samsung J7 Pro/A5/A7, One Plus 5/5T, Nokia 3/5 and Vivo V7 plus devices will start releasing Over the Air (OTA) updates to enable Idea users to experience VoLTE service soon.
