VoLTE stands for Voice over LTE, and we usually call LTE 4G. So it means making calls over the 4G network. You don’t use data, but rather ordinary call minutes. Just like mobile browsing, making calls via 4G is a lot faster than via 3G or 2G. What’s more, you can phone and browse at the same time at 4G speeds. You don’t pay any extra for it.
To use VoLTE, you need a Proximus mobile phone subscription and a compatible device with the latest software. At the moment, you can make calls via 4G on the Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, S6, S6 Edge, J5, A5 or A3. Other devices will follow soon. To check whether your device is suitable for VoLTE, enter *#1234# and press your call button. If the CSC code is the combination xxxxxxPROxxxxx or xxxxxxVFGxxxxx, with x being other letters and figures, your device is compatible.
To check whether you have the latest software on your device, go to Settings > Device Info > Download Updates to download the most recent software.
VoLTE is activated as standard on your device. If you use a VPN app, sometimes you need to temporarily switch off the VoLTE technology. Go to Settings > Mobile Networks and switch off the ‘VoLTE call’ button. Afterwards you can easily switch VoLTE back on again the same way.
The launch of VoLTE is still fresh in our minds, but that is definitely not the end. Proximus is the first operator in Belgium to roll out 4.5G in Antwerp, Charleroi and Ghent. So it will soon be possible to achieve speeds of up to 450 Mbps thanks to advanced radio transmission techniques and using different frequency bands. Meanwhile, 5G technology is also being tested, reaching speeds of up to 70 Gbps. The perfect answer to the growing Business benefits mobile data traffic.
