Mar 31 15
Rogers Communications Inc. turned on Voice over LTE (VoLTE) across Canada, giving customers with a VoLTE device clear, natural sounding voice and video calls. Calls will also connect even faster. Rogers customers will be the first in Canada to complete HD voice and video calls over a VoLTE network, where available, versus the traditional voice network. HD Voice delivers life-like sound quality. In addition, VoLTE lets customers simultaneously place a call and browse the web or stream video at lightning fast LTE speeds. Traditionally, data is transmitted over the HSPA network when a call is in progress. Because VoLTE relies on the LTE network, calls also connect faster to let customers reach family and friends almost instantly. Rogers VoLTE is now available across Canada and sets the groundwork for rich communications services of the future, including voice and video calls and video sharing. Customers will be able to make and receive HD video calls to and from other Rogers customers on supported devices.
