Globe enables LTE calls in NCR

Mobile users of Globe Telecom in the National Capital Region (NCR) and neighboring provinces will now be able to make calls over the network’s Long Term Evolution (LTE) or 4G network, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

In a statement on Tuesday, Globe said it has fully enabled Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) in NCR, Rizal, Bulacan, and Cavite, with plans to “progressively” introduce the technology across the country.

“With VoLTE, customers can now have uninterrupted mobile browsing experience, online gaming, video streaming, and more, even with incoming voice calls,” Globe said.

Available to users with VoLTE-compatible mobile phones, the technology allows making and receiving calls over LTE instead of dropping down to 3G or 2G.

It said 4G has three times the voice capacity of 3G and six times that of 2G.

“This allows the network to accommodate more customers making calls at the same time with faster call set-up time, high audio and video quality, and even lower possibility of drop calls providing more efficient and convenient ways of communicating,” Globe said.

It said VoLTE is seen to eventually take-over the voice services of 2G and 3G networks after these technologies become “obsolete.”

For areas with insufficient coverage indoors, it said Voice Over Wireless Fidelity (VoWiFi) will accompany VoLTE, allowing voice calls over its customer’s existing WiFi.

“Due to geographical distance between the mobile phone and the nearest cell tower, as well as some physical obstacles, such as building materials which wireless signals cannot penetrate, there may be weak mobile signals inside a home or building. This can be addressed by VoWiFi since it uses the existing WiFi service of the customer to make voice calls,” Globe said.

These services, aside from requiring compatible handsets, will be charged like a regular phone call, it said.

“Consumers who are registered to Globe unli calls promo can also have unli VoLTE and VoWiFi calls within Globe,” Globe said.
