Robi launched Voice over LTE (VoLTE) service in the country as first operator which would enable the users to enjoy high definition voice call.
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan inaugurated the most advanced services at a ceremony on Wednesday as the chief guest in a city hotel where Posts and Telecommunications Minister Mustafa Jabbar was present as special guest, said a press release on Thursday.
Initially, Robi and Airtel customers in Dhaka and Chattogram divisions would get this service, as more than 5,000 sites have been activated with VoLTE service. Gradually, the service will be expanded to across the country. VoLTE is truly an IP-based voice call technology, which is especially designed to ensure HD quality voice calls. VoLTE treats voice as just another application that rides on the LTE data network, reports BSS.
This advanced technology will allow customers to have their calls set up duration within only 3-4 seconds, which is 40-50 percent faster than traditional 2G or 3G voice calls.
