DOCOMO PACIFIC has officially launched Voice over Long-Term Evolution or VoLTE.
The technology allows clearer voice calls to Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, the company announced recently.
“The launch of VoLTE marks another milestone on our journey to 5G and we’re happy to extend this new service to our DOCOMO PACIFIC customers at no extra charge,” DOCOMO PACIFIC President and CEO Roderick Boss stated in a news release.
VoLTE allows customers to place and receive voice calls over an LTE connection instead of the traditional voice network, resulting in high-definition voice services providing clearer audio quality, DOCOMO PACIFIC stated.
Customers with VoLTE can enjoy the following enhanced calling features on the DOCOMO PACIFIC LTE network:
• High-quality, more natural-sounding voice calls
• Improved handset battery life – VoLTE eliminates switching between networks
• Quick call connection
• Increased Voice over Internet Protocol functionality
“While text-based messaging platforms continue to grow as the most frequently used form of mobile communication, they will never replace voice calls, which are highly personal and interactive. There’s a level of trust that is established through voice calls that just can’t be replicated through email or text. Through VoLTE, the voice at the other end is crystal clear and natural. It’s the closest thing to being there, said Tom Valderrama, executive vice president for Consumer Business Unit at DOCOMO PACIFIC.
VoLTE is available to customers at no extra cost, the company stated.
