Vodafone India Rolls Out VoLTE Services in Bengaluru and Mysore

Incumbent telecom operator Vodafone is expanding its VoLTE footprint in India with every passing week. Today, the country’ second largest telecom operator announced the rollout of VoLTE services in Karnataka state. However, do make a note that the company has rolled out the service in just three cities in Karnataka state- Bengaluru, Mysore and Belgaum. Vodafone VoLTE services are currently available in Mumbai, Delhi-NCR, Gujarat, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Maharastra & Goa, Haryana, Tamil Nadu, UP East, UP West circles. But again, do make a note that the service availability depends on your location in every state.

Announcing the launch of the Vodafone VoLTE service, Amit Kapur, Business Head – Karnataka, Vodafone India, said, “We have been making significant investments to expand, upgrade and modernise our network to ensure that we provide the finest service experience and seamless connectivity to our valued customers. We are delighted that Vodafone is now launching VoLTE services in Karnataka with cities like Bengaluru, Mysore & Belgaum and will soon extend it to other key cities. Vodafone VoLTE is a step further towards enhancing customer experience and enabling our customers in Karnataka to explore newer possibilities with their smart devices.”

Vodafone says that the service will be expanded to other circles and cities very soon in a phased manner. That said, Vodafone’s VoLTE supported device still remains as a small one with just 20 devices. In contrast, Airtel has added more than 100 devices to its VoLTE supported list. Vodafone should solve this issue as there’s no point for the company to roll out service in a city without the support for popular devices.

Recently, the company added three new devices to the list- the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, the Nokia 6 and the Gionee M7 Power. But still, smartphones from brands such as Apple, Samsung are missing from the list, which is a massive letdown. Vodafone first rolled out the VoLTE service two months ago.

The lack of VoLTE support for Apple iPhones will hurt Vodafone badly as in Bengaluru, there are many iPhone users compared to several other parts of the country.
