22 Sep 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
VoLTE has the following key features:
Voice and data share the 4G network allowing for faster data access speeds while on a call, and faster connection times for calls.
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.
Support for future applications such as Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) will enable better coverage indoors.
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. Mike Wright, Group Managing Director Networks
