11 Jul 2016

United Arab Emirates (UAE) telco Etisalat has launched voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) services for both pre-paid and post-paid mobile customers. The company says it expects the technology to bring ‘major improvements’ to the quality of voice and video calls, while also reducing call set-up time. Etisalat Group’s chief executive officer Saleh Al Abdooli commented: ‘Although internet-based chat apps and messengers have gained popularity in recent years, voice calls continue to matter most when people want real-time, interactive and instantly gratifying connection with their families, friends or colleagues.’
