Idea Cellular has completed the roll out of VoLTE (Voice over LTE) services across all its 4G circles, making it the only GSM operator to offer the service across 20 circles in India.
Idea has also launched VoLTE services in Himachal Pradesh, Odisha, Assam, North East and Jammu & Kashmir, expanding VoLTE presence across all its 20 4G circles.
As part of the launch offer, Idea is giving 30 GB free data to its VoLTE users. Customers will get 10 GB data on making the first VoLTE call, additional 10 GB on giving feedback on the service after 4 weeks, and another 10 GB on giving feedback after 8 weeks.
Sashi Shankar, Chief Marketing Officer, Idea Cellular said, “With the completion of last phase of VoLTE roll out, Idea is now the only operator to offer pan India integrated 2G, 3G, 4G and VoLTE services. Through our collaboration with 10 leading device brands, which cover 75% of the smartphone market, we will cater to our growing base of VoLTE users across the country.”
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 utilization.
Idea VoLTE allows subscribers to continue experiencing un-interrupted 4G internet while simultaneously being on a voice call. The service 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. Idea users can call all mobile and landline networks using VoLTE service.
