VoLTE technology has been there for a while and it picked up momentum in India after the launch of Jio 4G. Jio had upper hand as it was the only operator in India to provide VoLTE services. In case you didn’t know what VoLTE is, it is a technology which uses 4G data for calls instead of traditional 3G and 2G networks. A USP of VoLTE is the ability to use mobile data while on call along with High Definition Calls.
Now, other telecom operators are gearing up to launch VoLTE services in India. Airtel, one of the most popular telecom operators in India is making an announcement tomorrow(10th July 2017) at a press conference in Delhi.
