Why is call quality on mobiles about to get so much better?

Vodafone has joined EE in testing a new technology called Voice over LTE (VoLTE) that’ll make call quality a lot better.

VoLTEuses you 4G mobile signal to make phone calls. At the moment, if you make a phone call on a 4G phone, it’ll drop down to a 3G or 2G connection.

That makes anything you’re downloading in the background slow down or stop. And as 3G and 2G are slowerthan 4G, call quality isn’t as good.

With VoLTE, you’ll be able to keep downloading stuff while making a call and everyone will hear you much more clearly.

As Vodafone only made its first successful test today, and EE is also in very early testing stages, we don’t know when we’ll get to use the new technology. But we hope it’ll be soon.
