VoLTE provides high-definition quality phone calls by using LTE networks instead of legacy voice networks. Remarkably, VoLTE-VoLTE calls are crystal-clear, eliminating static background sounds.

LTE-enabled smartphones have a 15 million user penetration in the Egyptian market. The unlocking of VoLTE will accelerate communication & economic growth like never before. The adoption of VoLTE enables voice-over IoT for different consumer-to-business and business-to-business applications.
