Telus, Canada's second-largest wireless provider, has launched Voice Over LTE, or VoLTE, as a pilot in a small area of the British Columbia Lower Mainland before rolling it out to the rest of the country.
Currently available for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and LG G4, with other devices to come in the "near future," according to a support page for the service, Telus notes that there are multiple benefits to using VoLTE:
- Increased availability of HD Voice
- Simultaneous use of voice and LTE data
- Reduced delay to dial tone
As with VoLTE on both Rogers and Bell, Telus does not deduct the data consumed for a VoLTE call from a customer's monthly bandwidth.
