Reliance Jio 4g is live in India and the firm has announced the list of VoLTE supported phones that can be upgraded with Jio network. If you want to test the HD Voice, Jio 4g users need to have a VoLTE supported smartphone.
Jio is working hard to kick-start commercial launch of 4g service and testing different types of service-related issues.
Jio has come with extremely low data plans in 4G network, and also providing three months free data in preview offer. It’s commercial launch is scheduled on 31 Dec, 2016.
The firm is going to serve high-quality voice over 4G network across India. Jio has already launched various LYF mobiles under names Water, Earth which support both VoLTE & VoWiFi. It is currently ranging from Rs 3,000 to Rs 25,000.
Jio will provide its 4G services through three different bands: Band 5 (850MHz), Band 3 (1800Mhz) and band 40 (2300MHz). Band 40 will remain active PAN India but rest of two bands will be available in few circles and later Jio will expand as usual. To use the Jio network, make sure your 4G device supports at least two bands – 2300MHz and 1800Mhz or 850Mhz.
What is VoLTE ?
VoLTE – Voice over LTE which means true HD Voice calling over 4G LTE Network. Voice will become accurate & clearer. Your 4G mobile must support VoLTE features to make HD Voice calls.
What is VoWiFi ?
VoWiFi – Voice over WiFi. With the Jio, you can continue with HD Voice calls over WiFi if 4G Cellular network is weak. Switching between VoLTE & VoWiFi will be in background without disruption running HD Voice calls.
How to check VoLTE support in your 4G Smartphone?
Insert the Jio SIM card in your 4G phone and wait till network come. If your phone supports VoLTE, you will get a VoLTE sign just above mobile tower icon on upper left/right corner of the screen. You may also get LTE HD sign for true HD calls.
