Why VoLTE is such a big deal in mobile phones?


Smartphones became more important since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic as they help you connect to your friends and family.

But with the absence of a quality network service, the purpose of using smartphones to communicate becomes null.

That’s why the announcement of telcos Globe Telecom and Smart Communications to expand and improve their Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services is a good news for Filipinos.

But for those who are still confused about VoLTE, let us break it down for you.

VoLTE is the new standard for providing fast wireless communication via mobile phones using LTE connection instead of older standards like 2G and 3G. It basically enhances your phone calls’ quality and reduces signal interruptions.

To take advantage of VoLTE, you would need a 4G-capable smartphone, Globe or Smart LTE SIM card, and sufficient load or active voice/SMS subscription.
