Vodafone India Confirmed to Launch VoLTE Services in Mumbai, Gujarat, Delhi, Karnataka, and Kolkata From January 2018

Vodafone India will be rolling out VoLTE services from January 2018 in a phased manner. The company will start the rollout process in metro cities (Mumbai, Gujarat, Delhi, Karnataka, Kolkata) and will extend the coverage to pan-India. Vodafone did not mention any timeframe on when it’s going to offer pan-India VoLTE services. If Vodafone launches VoLTE services as promised, it will become the third operator in India to offer voice calls over VoLTE technology after Reliance Jio and Bharti Airtel. Vodafone’s VoLTE service allows the Vodafone SuperNet 4G customers to experience HD quality calls with faster call connect time.

Vodafone India VoLTE

Vodafone 4G customers will experience VoLTE at no additional charges. All they need is a handset supporting Vodafone VoLTE and a 4G SIM. It seems like Vodafone will also follow Airtel’s way of adding VoLTE support to devices manually. Currently, Vodafone India is offering voice calls through standard legacy circuit-switch technology. Shifting to Voice over LTE technology will allow the operator to go head-on-head with Reliance Jio and Airtel. And the country’ second largest telecom operator may soon offer voice calls without FUP.

Bharti Airtel is currently offering VoLTE services in some major cities of India such as Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai, Karnataka, etc. On the flip side, we have Reliance Jio which is offering VoLTE services across the entire country.

Vodafone, in a press statement sent out today also said that it had built a data strong network of over 1,40,000 sites to enable better call quality and mobile internet experience to its customers. Even when there’s a switch from 4G to 3G during a VoLTE call, the voice call may not be dropped, just like how Airtel’s VoLTE. That said, Idea Cellular would be the only top telecom operator not to offer VoLTE service. Idea is also rumoured to start VoLTE service in early 2018.

I don’t think I am getting on jio in kolkata.
Anyone getting CA in kolkata?


No CA when base band is 40. Try calling 199 and then check band info during call as it might shift to band 3 or 5 as bbase2


You won’t latch on Jio CA when either of two carriers of B40 is base.
BtW which Samsung phone you’ve?


Huge difference in speed on Iphone 7 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8 at same location in Jio network. 2CA vs 3 CA. Handset matters

This high speed race on a ‘Mobile Network’ is ‘futile’ because of ‘Data Consumption Limitations'(case in point 1-2 GB per day). What would an individual do with 100 Mbps, when there is a data limit involved!? Only thing that would happen is data would get downloaded a little faster, and in case of 10-12 Mbps it would take few more minutes, that’s it! So, this constant fighting or constant comparisons between different handsets or chipsets is not worth fighting for! We don’t need 100 or 70 Mbps on a ‘mobile network’! We need consistency of 10-12 Mbps PAN India basis.… Read more »

The logic you are presenting is flawed just like your alias. We need faster speeds 100Mbps and more, this is the speed we should get in 2017. Its not stone age where 10-12 Mbps will do the stuff who have time to wait with such speeds, tell me. Why dont you use 2G, even that does the job when you have wifi at home !! People who have time should go for BSNL 3G then its consistent with 2 Mbps does most job. Its 4G so we are thinking in GB’s with speeds of 100+ Mbps. With 5G we are… Read more »

I am sorry to say you lack basic ‘comprehension’ skills, as they say ‘common sense’ is not common these days!

Kisi ek shehar mein 2-4 tower ne 100 Mbps de diya, iska matlab PAN India saree logo ko vo speed milegi kya?
Bakki log kya karenge!? Possible nahi hai, bahut saree factors hote hai.

I will take ‘consistentency’ over aberration/fluke. Period.

I hope you understand now, and next time think before replying to any post.


i just compared handsets. and in MP jio experience is far better compared to Delhi or UP

Airtel User

Jio 4G is very good in MH,KA,AP,GJ,RJ, too. But people here just sitting in some house are making assumptions about chipsets & 4G networks by there flawed senses which itslef is pathetic. Go out & experience first.

three ji han ji

‘DON’T ASSUME THINGS! You just made this all up as if you know ‘the person’, you are replying to a stranger and acting as if you are the only person who has experienced Jio services, what the heck!? Just to give a simple analogy, to cover a distance of 50 KM(corresponds to 1-2 GB per day), one does not need an aeroplane, he/she can travel via a vehicle(motorbike/car) or a train. If one were to travel from India to Australia, he/she will have no recourse apart from air travel i.e.,high speed(corresponds to home wifi network to download/stream at 100 Mbps… Read more »

I already said you have low IQ it shows in your comments & analogies !! And you didn’t wrote a thesis LoL in your previous comments, that you are asking me to read it again !! You go enjoy pager services in the room you are sitting right now because that’s what stone age people do. And if you think 10 Mbps is good enough as if you just moved from 2G to 4G which may be the case most likely with some low on specs mid range device, then i can say “you haven’t experienced 100+ Mbps speeds” in… Read more »

I know you come from a 2G back ground that’s why you expect less and is happy with 10-12 Mbps ! World is moving towards 5G wireless networks with 1000+Mbps speeds and you want to ride bullock cart, that’s your regressive thinking. And going by your comment i can see you are sitting in some room commenting and enjoying stone age speeds, go out and experience Jio 4G speeds. I am talking about cities states pan India, Jio 4G have presence everywhere and where there is CA & MIMO speeds are already crossing 100+ Mbps. Jio 4G m jitna consistency… Read more »

You’re correct. At most these speed tests give people a thrill because they’re not used to seeing such high speeds in India, that too on mobiles. Unless everyone gets such high speeds in populated areas and without CA, then it means something. 2 GBs will be consumed in under three minutes at 100 Mbps.


iPhone 7 doesn’t support 3CA ? Note 8 does support rite ? Correct me if I’m wrong


In iphone7 specifications it is written that it supports 3 CA but on Jio network i have noticed 2 CA


Sari Jio ki speed ap hi kheech rahe ho Nitin sir 🙂
btw Jio also has good spectrum portfolio in MP


Yes and coverage wise it is excellent especially on highways and rail routes.


In MP Airtel can also pull upto 50 Mbps. Idea is better than both Airtel and Jio for coverage only but not speed-wise.

Jio is 2nd best after Idea and definitely they are poised to become no.2, taking RCOM’s place.

Airtel User

That’s what i have been saying Jio 4G is very good on highways & rail routes.


Get some knowledge dude,iphone 7 supports 3CA,the both phones might be latched to different bands or the screenshots are of different locations.
