Friday 17 February 2017 | 09:34 CET | News
Orange Spain has announced that it's the first operator in the country to offer its customers both VoLTE (Voice over Long Term Evolution) and Wi-Fi calling technology over its 4G and 4G+ network. The advanced calling technology has been available at no extra charge to both iOS and Android users since the end of January. Currently, the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, SE, 6s, 6s Plus, 7 and 7Plus, plus the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, and Sony Xperia X and XZ can run the technology, with Orange promising to make available more compatible handsets in the next few weeks.
