Bharti Airtel conducting trials of VoLTE technology in five circles

India's largest mobile operator Bharti Airtel is conducting trials of Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE) or voice over LTE technology in five cities, and hopes to take it pan-India in the later part of the year. VoLTE is a technology for facilitating voice on 4G network, and lowers the cost of offering voice calls.

The rollout of VoLTE by larger players like Airtel is expected to open up a new frontier in the price war with its competitor Reliance Jio.

Bharti Airtel is a leading integrated telecommunications company with operations across Asia and Africa. The company ranks amongst the top 3 mobile service providers globally in terms of subscribers.
