Telefonica Deutschland, Germany’s largest mobile operator by subscribers, has announced that it is enabling VoLTE and VoWiFi technologies for all customers of its home and partner brands. The firm states that both pre-paid and post-paid users will benefit from improved voice quality, shorter call setup times and expanded network coverage via LTE and Wi-Fi at no additional cost. Telefonica will gradually implement the services across the individual brands and customer groups, with a view to completing the process by the end of March 2018.
‘We set new standards for our customers’ mobile freedom. This is why, as the first network operator in Germany, we will offer Wi-Fi calls and VoLTE via our high-performance LTE network for all our customers,’ commented Telefonica Deutschland’s CTO Cayetano Carbajo Martin, adding: ‘We want to offer our customers an optimal user experience in the mobile network of Telefonica Deutschland. This is why we work consistently to further optimise our voice and data services.’
