MTN pioneers VoLTE call service in Nigeria

MTN Nigeria has launched Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE) call service across the country. It said the launch was in line with its commitment to providing access to the best communications technology and improving overall customer experience.

The service, also referred to as high definition (HD) calls, provides customers who own compatible devices with superior natural-sounding voice quality, reduced background noise and faster call connectivity.

Online knowledge bank, Wikipedia, defines as “an LTE high-speed wireless communication standard for mobile phones and data terminals, including Internet of things (IoT) devices and wearables. VoLTE has up to three times more voice and data capacity than older 3G UMTS and up to six times more than 2G GSM. It uses less bandwidth because VoLTE's packet headers are smaller than those of unoptimized VoIP/LTE.  VoLTE calls are usually charged at the same rate as other calls”.

The Chief Marketing Officer of MTN Nigeria, Adia Sowho said the service is freely accessible at VoLTE enabled devices.

She said:  “With VoLTE, MTN Nigeria continues to enhance Nigerian lives with innovative technology.  VoLTE is free to access today at your rates, from a VoLTE-enabled smartphone so you can call and surf at the same time with no interruptions ever again. We move!”

The MTN VoLTE call service will be charged at regular call rates. It will be available to all customers with VoLTE-enabled devices such as Tecno Phantom X, Infinix Zero X and Infinix Zero X Pro smartphones. Other device models from Samsung, Nokia, Apple, Tecno, and others will be supported soon.

To enjoy the service, customers only need to do three things: check that they have a 4G USIM; check that they are within a 4G coverage area by texting 4G to 131, and update their VoLTE smartphone to the latest software version and restart the phone.
