Unitel, the largest mobile operator in Angola announced that it has succesfully enabled VoLTE on its LTE network, via a demonstration in December 2015 which tested seamless handover of the calls from LTE to 2G/3G networks, supporting the Single Radio Voice Call Continuity system(SRVCC) functionality. 

The operator said that it plans to commercially launch the service March this year to enable voice calls in High Definition. VoLTE also boasts reduced call setup time, the ability to use data and voice simultaneously on the LTE network and optimization of a smartphone's battery life.

The service which will initially be offered via popular smartphone brands that support VoLTE, will be expanded to its own branded smartphone, Laranja at a later stage.
