Optus launches VoLTE services

Monday 9 May 2016 | 10:28 CET | News
Australian operator Optus said it has commenced roll-out of Voice over LTE across its 4G Plus mobile network in Australia's major capital cities. VoLTE allows users with compatible devices to make and receive calls over the 4G network. Previously, only data services were offered via 4G. It also offers higher voice quality and a shorter call set-up time for customers, while allowing them to maintain a 4G data connection while making a call. The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will be the first devices available with Optus VoLTE, with plans to include more devices underway.  Optus postpaid
