Making calls now becomes even better, with 4G

Be the first to knowby Peter21/11/2016

There's no denying it, we're all very impatient.

Even when it comes to the latest technologies. So we're now going a step further, with the launch of Voice over 4G (VoLTE).

“What’s that? VoLTE?”

Did you know that until now you could surf, but not call, using 4G? When you started a call, your smartphone switched back to 3G or even 2G. This meant that sometimes it took several seconds for the telephone at the other end to start ringing. Perhaps you never really noticed it, but we did and thought "we can do better!”.

That's why we'll be launching VoLTE, or Voice over LTE (LTE is what we know as 4G). VoLTE therefore means calling via 4G. That’s all very well, but what's more interesting are the advantages, agreed?  Well, as I already mentioned, your calls will be set up faster.

But, that's not all. The audio quality will also be much better: it'll be in high-definition, as if the person you're calling* were standing right next to you. Moreover, you’ll be able to simultaneously call and surf at 4G speeds. This is handy, for instance, if you're calling with your earphones on and want to use mobile Internet at the same time to quickly check what's playing at the movies.

"Cool! But when can I use VoLTE?”

At the moment we're rolling out VoLTE in stages. If you have a Proximus mobile subscription and a compatible device,  we'll send you a text message as soon as the technology is activated for you**.To enjoy it to the full, you simply have to reboot your phone.

And incidentally, it won't cost you anything extra. Not bad, eh?

* We previously launched HD audio quality for 3G calls: read all about it here.

** Rather not have VoLTE after all? No problem, you can always switch it off. On your phone, go to "Settings" and click through to "Mobile networks".
