For the first time in Nepal, Nepal Telecom (NTC) has introduced the Volte service, which is currently being tested among a large number of subscribers. In reality, making the best quality calls from your 4G smartphone is something of a revolution in Nepal. Not to mention the video calls (without using data), instant call setup, and a slew of other benefits that come with the Ntc VoLTE service; here are nine of them.
It is currently compatible with a limited number of Samsung, Xiaomi, Nokia, and other smartphones. The Volte works on some iPhone models, but it is known to have issues.
According to Ntc, they are collaborating with a growing number of smartphone manufacturers to expand VoLTE support for their devices.
Let’s talk about the best features of the Voice over LTE service now that we have the Volte service in Nepal.
Nepal Telecom has expanded its 4G network to all of the country’s major cities and districts, encompassing all 77 districts. The company’s network has now been upgraded to support VoLTE across its entire 4G coverage area. That means you’ll be able to use VoLTE through Nepal Telecom’s entire 4G network. Despite some misleading statements in the media, VoLTE coverage is available on the NTC 4G network in bands 3 and 20. And it works regardless of the built-in country. That means that VoLTE is also supported by smartphones made in India or variants of smartphones made in India.
Calls over 4G
Voice calls made from your phone used to fall back to 3G or 2G while you were on the 4G network. However, with Volte, your phone does not need to fall back because it can send voice directly from the 4G network.
High Definition Calls
VoLTE allows you to make virtually noise-free calls with HD content and a lifelike experience. When comparing 4G Volte calls to standard 2G and 3G calls, the call quality of 4G Volte calls is easily distinguishable. The superior quality would compel you to choose VoLTE over 2G, 3G, or OTT calls.
Fast call setup
The call setup time in 2G and 3G is very sluggish, causing you to hang up the phone after waiting for a long time for an answer. However, with Volte, you can have an instant call setup, which improves your calling experience.
Call continuity to 2G, 3G
When you switch from a 4G (Volte) area to a low or no 4G coverage area, your call will be automatically transferred to 2G or 3G, with no call drop. SRVCC is the name of this element (Single Radio Voice call continuity). As a result, even if you leave the 4G footprint, you’ll be able to make calls.
Simultaneous Call and high-speed data:
With Volte enabled, you can use Volte to make calls while also accessing high-speed data over the 4G network. With the HD quality calls, there will be no speed degradation. However, by using the fallback mode or making calls over 3G, the data speed drops dramatically.
Apart from HD calls, carrier-based video calls will also be available, which do not require you to turn on your data. ViLTE is another name for this operation (Video over LTE). It also allows users to switch between calls and video, similar to OTT apps like Messenger and Viber. This is a fantastic feature!!!
After having spent a significant amount of money on IMS technology and website, Nepal Telecom charges the same rate for VoLTE calls. That means improved call quality for the same price is unquestionably worthwhile. Volte calls can also be made with any of the current voice packages. All Nepali Telecom operators’ tariffs, including Voice, can be found here.
Free 100 mins talk time within NT
If you want to help test the Ntc Volte network, you can get 100 minutes of free Volte calls inside NT for the next 28 days. To ensure that your system supports Volte, dial *444#. You will then receive a VoLTE Sign on your device, after which dialing *111# will provide you with free VoLTE call minutes. To use the free kit, you must make a VoLTE call, regardless of whether the calling end is Volte or not.
Volte service, like the customer, gives you a better speech, video, and other communication experience. Telecom operators can also benefit from offloading inefficient voice calls from conventional 2G and 3G technology. Along with VoLTE, some people can make calls over WiFi using the VoWifi technology, which is currently being tested by Ntc and will be available soon.
