Airtel has announced the launch of its VoLTE services in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The VoLTE services work on the 4G networks, which will provide HD quality of voice calls and faster call setup to customers. In case of non-availability of 4G network coverage, VoLTE calls will automatically fall back on the 3G/2G network, so that the customers continue to stay connected.
The service is available in popular 4G/LTE enabled devices and customers can call on any mobile, landline network using Airtel VoLTE. Further, there will be no additional data charges for VoLTE and calls will be billed as per existing plan or packs benefits. Customers can easily upgrade their SIM to 4G from their nearest Airtel service centre, by providing a photo ID proof and a passport size photo.

The VoLTE stands for Voice over Long-Term Evolution and is used for transmitting voice data over the 4G/LTE network, rather than using 2G/ 3G connections. The USP of VoLTE technology is its HD voice calling quality which is much superior to normal 2G/3G voice calling and far more data can be transferred over 4G than 2G or 3G.
