Vodafone India on Tuesday confirmed the roll-out of its Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services beginning January 2018.

Vodafone VoLTE is an important step towards introducing futuristic technology enhancing our data strong network," said Sunil Sood, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Vodafone India.

Reliance Jio, with its entry into the telecom sector in India back in September 2016, was the first telco to offer VoLTE services in India. Airtel followed with a launch in September this year and has so far been launched in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Chennai. Other operators are yet to get into this space, which enables call charges to be dropped significantly if not completely.

Earlier this week, state-owned telecom operator BSNL announced it would start 4G services in the country in January, with Kerala its first destination. Odisha is next on the BSNL 4G rollout list.
