If you're new to the nomenclature, "VoLTE" may look like something you'd expect to see on the label of an energy drink. In actuality, VoLTE stands for Voice over LTE, a feature that allows mobile users to talk and surf the web at the same time. That's something AT&T subscribers have been able to do for a long time now, and if you're one of them, there's still reason to be excited about the service -- HD Voice. By taking advantage of the ultra-fast 4G LTE data speeds available, VoLTE allows AT&T to offer higher quality calls through HD Voice. It produces more natural sounding audio by stretching...

Here's a PSA from your favorite tech website (HotHardware, of course!): Verizon Wireless is now offering Advanced Calling 1.0 across its nationwide network on select smartphones. Advanced Calling is more commonly known as Voice over LTE, or VoLTE, with Verizon's offering a first-generation service suite available on just a handful of devices so far, including iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, LG G2, and Samsung Galaxy S5.

That's because Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) remains a fledgling feature, barely supported anywhere in the world, and certainly not broadly in the United States. As with everything in the technology world, that's changing. Starting May 23rd, AT&T will bring High Definition (HD) Voice using an "all-IP, VoLTE network." At first, only select markets will be tapped, but it'll spread like wildfire after the initial launch. This... Read more...
Fraunhofer IIS may not be a super familiar name in the consumer realm, but in the world of research, there's hardly a company that comes up with crazier things than these guys and girls. The company has chosen Mobile World Congress as the place to present the world's first Full-HD Voice mobile phone calls over an LTE network. Verizon Wireless has toyed with VoLTE (voice over LTE) before, but we've seen nothing beyond semi-promising demonstrations. This particular method enables mobile phone calls to sound as clear as talking to another person in the same room, at a quality level that is equal to... Read more...
