Airtel offer: In past one year, the Indian telecom market was all about free and unlimited calls, unlimited internet packs and many other data offers, thanks to Reliance Jio’s entry in the sector. Now, it looks like the next big battle can emerge in regards to ‘VoLTE’, with latest one being Bharti Airtel, which is all set to launch its VoLTE services in India. For stirring up competition, RJio, which already uses VoLTE, has forced other telcos to move towards this technology that is known for providing more clarity on calls, internet pack,etc. Interestingly to take on RJio, Airtel through it’s VoLTE services is also offering free 30GB data in 3G/4G internet services. However, Airtel is not alone, even Idea Cellular and Vodafone have stepped into this technology.
On it’s website, the company has mentioned that, Airtel VoLTE (Voice over LTE) is an advanced service through which customers can experience HD quality crystal clear voice with faster call setup time. While using VoLTE services, users can continue to have uninterrupted high-speed 4G internet experience.
Currently, the Airtel VoLTE services are available only in Mumbai, Maharashtra, Goa, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh & Telangana, Karnataka, Chennai & West Bengal.
All customers who OPT IN for Beta Launch will be will be credited 30 GB data on completion of the following events:

- 10 GB will be credited on providing feedback on VoLTE services at the end of week 8 of VoLTE provisioning on his/her smartphone, valid for 28 days.
However, there are list of terms and condition which an user needs to remember while opting for Airtel’s VoLTE services.
Firstly, Airtel VoLTE calls will be charged as per your existing voice plan / pack and would not consume any additional data. The VoLTE Services can be availed on compatible smartphones.
Even calls made to international numbers will be charged at the existing prices as applicable on the customer’s number.
Also calls made using Airtel’s VoLTE Services to any other network or number not having VoLTE Services would be possible and will be charged for at the existing prices/ plans as applicable to other networks for the duration of the call.
Airtel in the terms of condition also mentions that, the company will be entitled to postpone, suspend, modify or cancel the VoLTE Services or any aspect thereof, at any time with or without notice, for any reason, including, but not limited to, acts of God, force majeure, technical difficulties, or any other reasons beyond Airtel’s reasonable control.

Last week, Vodafone expanded it’s VoLTE footprint by rolling out the services in Karnataka state- Bengaluru, Mysore and Belgaum. Vodafone’s this service is already operation in cities like Mumbai, Delhi-NCR, Gujarat, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Maharastra & Goa, Haryana, Tamil Nadu, UP East, UP West circles.
Meanwhile Idea Cellular on March 01, launched it’s VoLTE services for its employees in 30 cities. It is being expected that, in it’s first phase, the company will roll out VoLTE in Maharashtra and Goa, Kerala, Gujarat, and Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
Coming back to RJio, the company when entered telecom market, it’s highlight was 4G-only network, with support for VoLTE. However, things have changed, as the rivals have also learned the games of RJio by offering cheap and heavy data to customers.
Airtel, Idea and Vodafone offer the high-speed mobile data using 3G / 4G network. However, this is not the case of RJio, as 2G/3G spectrum is unavailable, so all calls go through 4G VoLTE on RJio.
VoLTE which is know as Voice over Long Term Evolution, is referred to voice over internet protocol or IP-based LTE network. Thus, the technology allows users to make voice calls over LTE. It enables high definition (HD) voice calling.
