Ncell VoLTE service has been launched with a promotional offer. The most awaited service from the private telco is finally here. With the first activation, Ncell is also providing a 100 minutes Ncell to Ncell voice pack for free. Let’s know more about Ncell VoLTE and its steps of activation in this article.
What is VoLTE?
VoLTE stands for Voice Over LTE which uses a 4G/LTE network for running calls and data simultaneously. Previously, a 4G network would only allow data at 4G speed while the calls use the 3G network instead. With VoLTE, voice calls become HD quality for a clear and faster connection.
The company has been testing VoLTE privately for a while now. There have been speculations about its launch and now it is here. But the service is only available for select device models of Huawei, Vivo, and Samsung as of now. The initial test commenced with Huawei’s Nova 3i phone. The list of Ncell VoLTE-supported devices is as follows;
- Huawei Y9 Prime 2019, Huawei Nova 3i
- Samsung Galaxy A33, Samsung Galaxy A53, Samsung Galaxy A51
- Vivo Y55, Vivo Y55
Users having a Ncell’s USIM (4G GSM) can enjoy the service on the aforementioned devices. The telco is seeking to add more devices to the list from all major OEMs very soon. Ncell VoLTE will work on both 900MHz and 1800MHz 4G bands which it operates in Nepal. And the service will only cater to voice calls. Wi-Fi calling and video calls are not available as of now.

VoLTE Progression in Nepal

Also, both Telcos are into providing and improving networks in all parts of the country. So, the addition of services like VoLTE can improvise call quality in regions having 4G networks.
Ncell has pledged to add support for more devices in the near future. The next support will likely be on Xiaomi devices which have a massive share in the market. Also, supported devices are suggested to have the latest firmware (software) installed to use new services.
With overall availability and new devices coming with VoLTE support, it will aid in elevating the telco services. Nepal has already stepped into digitization and Telco sectors play a vital role in providing internet connection and voice calls.
