This summer will also see the rollout of VoLTE.
Vodafone UK has announced it will launch Wi-Fi Calling and Voice over 4G (VoLTE) this summer.
The Wi-Fi Calling service uses existing wi-fi infrastructure to provide a voice signal without the use of an app, which can be useful for customers with poor network coverage and indoor signal.
In addition, the telecoms operator will launch VoLTE, which will allow voice calls to be carried over its 4G data network as opposed to the 2G or 3G voice network.
Vodafone will run VoLTE user trials ahead of its launch.
The new products are part of a £1 billion investment by Vodafone on its UK network and services. The initiative has so far comprised the nationwide provision of High Definition Voice technology, the rollout of 4G+ and the Rural Open Sure Signal programme.
Jeroen Hoencamp, Vodafone UK Chief Executive said, "Our Wi-Fi Calling service will ensure that our customers never miss a call. It is another important step towards our commitment to build the UK’s strongest converged network."
Vodafone is currently not in a position to offer a quad-play offering of mobile, landline, TV and broadband but hopes to be able to do so later this year. This would allow it to better compete with rivals such as Virgin.
