Vodafone Netherlands reaches 600,000 VoLTE users

Tuesday 11 April 2017 | 09:40 CET | News
Around 600,000 customers of Vodafone Netherlands are already using VoLTE services, generating around 11 million minutes of traffic per day, CEO Eben Albertyn announced. Vodafone started testing VoLTE last August and by the start of this year it had around 250,000 active users. It's also been rolling out VoWiFi to help improve coverage for customers. Albertyn also discussed in the blog post the ongoing upgrade of the mobile network, using techniques such as SON (Self Organising Network) and call re-establishment. The latter has helped reduce the amount of dropped calls by 25 percent, he said.
