Vodafone Germany launches VoLTE

18 March 2015 |

Vodafone has launched its voice over LTE (VoLTE) services in Germany.

The company is rolling out VoLTE in Hanover, which it claims is the first such service in the country. The service will ensure crystal-clear voice quality, super-fast call connection and better protection against eavesdroppers on mobile networks. 

The launch coincided with the CeBit conference in Hanover Germany this week at which Vodafone is demonstrating VoLTE and 5G services. 

“5G will spearhead the digital transformation of our industrial landscape and society,“ said Jens Schulte-Bockum, CEO of Vodafone Germany. “The new real-time internet will make autonomous driving, remote surgery and genuine virtual classrooms possible. At CeBIT we will be demonstrating to the public how Germany leads the field in pioneering 5G mobile communications research.”

The VoLTE announcement comes about a week after Vodafone UK announced plans to launch its VoLTE service in the middle of this year.
