A1 Telekom Austria has revealed that it has rolled out ‘Voice Plus’ technology, which combines voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) and Wi-Fi Calling, across its mobile network. The new service allows for improved voice quality, faster connection speeds and wider network coverage. It is available at no additional cost for all A1 Telekom customers with a compatible smartphone and tariff, including ‘A1 Go!’, ‘A1 Basic’ and ‘Red Bull MOBILE Volume’.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, A1 Telekom first launched VoLTE for new and existing ‘A1 Go! Premium’ customers with compatible handsets on 30 November 2015. The firm’s more than 1,000 LTE base stations provide network coverage of over 75% of the country and the company says it aims to provide ‘almost full coverage’ of 4G services in 2016, as well as improve indoor coverage.
