Airtel 4G VoLTE Launched
The voice calls on VoLTE network are made using data but the company said there will be no additional data charges for VoLTE and calls will be billed as per existing plan or pack benefits.
In addition to that, Airtel promises seamless connectivity in case of non-availability of 4G, the voice calls will fall back to the 3G/2G network. It’s worth noting that this feature will also allow users to continue with their data sessions at 4G speeds while the call is in progress.
C. Surendran, Chief Executive Officer – Karnataka, Bharti Airtel said:
Having built a world class 4G network in Chennai, we are delighted to extend our service portfolio by rolling out VoLTE calling in the city. We invite our customers to experience the service. We plan to expand our VoLTE footprint across Tamil Nadu over the next few months.
