Etisalat Misr, in collaboration with Ericsson, is set to unveil a new era of mobile voice communications with the launching of Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) services in Egypt.

Etisalat Misr is the first telecommunications company in Egypt to launch VoLTE; strengthening Etisalat Misr's leadership in adopting the latest technologies to its customers.

Ericsson claims that its state-of-the-art VoLTE solution enables calls to connect 5 times faster than calls connected over legacy technologies.

Globally, the number of VoLTE subscriptions is projected to reach 5.4 billion by the end of 2023, accounting for around 80 percent of combined LTE and 5G subscriptions, according to the latest Ericsson Mobility Report.
