Orange Spain has announced the launch of VoLTE (Voice over Long Term Evolution) technology over its 4G and 4G+ network throughout the country. The technology will offer significantly improved voice quality, quicker call set-up and simultaneous access to 4G data connections without interruptions, said Orange, with postpay customers able to access the service free of charge via a software update. The operator added that it used the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge to test the service and that more VoLTE-compatible handsets would be made available to customers in the next few weeks.
