4G Calling With Telstra VoLTE

Telstra is rolling out Voice over LTE, or VoLTE.

Post-paid customers using a 4G LTE compatible device will start to have access to 4G calling.

VoLTE is the next generation of how voice calls are carried over our network. In those 4G areas where VoLTE has been enabled, when customers make a voice call on a VoLTE enabled handset, the call is integrated into the 4G LTE data stream rather than the previous arrangement of reverting back to 3G. Mike Wright, Group Managing Director Networks


Key Features

VoLTE has the following key features:

4G Integration

Voice and data share the 4G network allowing for faster data access speeds while on a call, and faster connection times for calls.


HD quality

If you call a Telstra NBN service, or a Telstra Business and Enterprise service that uses a HD IP Telephony handset, you will be talking in full HD.


Wi-Fi Support

Support for future applications such as Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) will enable better coverage indoors.


Supported handsets will include the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ and others including the latest Xperia smartphones from Sony Mobile.


We are proud to continue to lead the industry by again being the first carrier in Australia to offer this very latest calling technology to our customers with a compatible mobile handset in VoLTE enabled areas and to be included in only a select number of carriers worldwide that are currently offering VoLTE technology to their customers.
