KPN launches voice over LTE

Monday 31 October 2016 | 15:14 CET | News
Dutch operator KPN announced the launch of voice over LTE services, after several successful tests conducted in partnership with Samsung. In the coming months customers with supporting handsets will be gradually migrated to the service. The first supporting phones are the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, and the list will be expanded to other models and manufacturers in the coming months. In addition to VoLTE, KPN plans to launch voice over Wi-Fi in 2017. The latter is expected to be helpful especially for indoor calls, where the mobile networks signal may be weaker.
