Voice and Video over LTE

What is Voice and Video over LTE?

Voice and Video over LTE is the next generation of voice and video calling. Before the launch of Voice and Video over LTE, voice calls were made over the Bell HSPA network. When you used data during a call, data would operate on HSPA speeds.

Now, with Voice and Video over LTE technology, you can:

  • Make a voice call and stay on LTE data speeds while you multi-task
  • Make and receive voice and video calls with improved voice quality
  • Switch between voice and video during calls
