Three unveiled that it will launch Voice over LTE (or VoLTE) service by September this year on its 4G network, complementing its data services available on the high speed connectivity. Three will support the service on a number of phones that include the Galaxy S6, HTC One M9, and probably on Apple's yet to be launched iPhone 7.
The launch will see Three’s customers making and receiving calls in places they have never been able to before, whilst experiencing high quality calling and speedy voice set up. Three targets to have 1 million customers to use VoLTE this year and 7.5 million by 2016.
Three said that beginning September, it will also add low frequency 800MHz spectrum to its existing network to significantly enhance Three’s coverage footprint, particularly indoors, helping to wipe out current coverage blackspots. In addition, Three's InTouch App which enables users to call and text over Wi-Fi, has been downloaded and activated by over 1 million customers, said the Operator.
