Vodafone launches VoLTE and VoWiFi

22 Nov 2016

Vodafone Netherlands has launched both voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) and voice-over-Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) for its customers. The company says that subscribers will benefit from HD call quality, and added that the new technology works faster and more effectively both indoors and outdoors. Using a lower frequency band (800MHz) 4G can cover longer distances more easily and penetrate through concrete, glass and steel buildings. Chief Technology Officer of Vodafone Netherlands, Eben Albertyn said: ‘As homes and offices are becoming better insulated, so we need to find new ways to achieve indoor coverage.’

Vodafone Netherlands’ VoLTE rollout follows Tele2 Netherlands’ deployment of the technology earlier in the year, while at the start of this month CommsUpdate reported that KPN had also begun rolling out VoLTE services to its customers.
