Bharti Airtel, India’s one of the largest telecom operator, rolled out its 4G VoLTE services in Mumbai. It’s expected to launch all over the country till next week. The only telco was Reliance Jio, who was providing 4G VoLTE services on PAN India basis. But now, Airtel has entered in the competition. So, a bunch of new 4G plans are coming from Airtel in a very short time span. So, in this article, we are going to talk about Airtel 4G VoLTE plan details, how to activate it and which devices are eligible to operate over Airtel VoLTE network.
As India is a very big country with over 125 crore plus huge population, covering the whole country with 4G VoLTE network is not an easy task at all. At first, Reliance Jio did this. But there was a huge plan of RIL chairman Mukesh Ambani behind launching Reliance Jio. But for Bharti Airtel, the largest telecom operator in India, it was a great shock. Before the launch of RJio, Airtel was making a huge profit out of their telecommunication business. But as soon as Jio entered in the market, all other telcos started receiving huge losses.
But Airtel is playing very hard to get the traction. Previously Airtel tried to launch Jio-Like plans but in vain. Something was missing which was given by RJio in their plans. But now, all the telecom operators like Airtel, BSNL, Vodafone are offering 4G plans which are very similar to Reliance Jio. But again, the biggest problem was, no other telcos were having VoLTE network all over the India excepting Jio. Now Bharti Airtel started its VoLTE network in Mumbai, and within a week, it will be in action covering the whole country.

Airtel VoLTE Plans Details
As of now, we do not have all the information about new Airtel VoLTE plans. But very soon it will launch a bunch of plans with free voice calling benefits. Airtel may also start giving free calling with their existing 4G data plans. A recent report also shows us that Bharti Airtel is going to launch its first 4G VoLTE smartphone during this Diwali season. So, may be the smartphone will come with some additional data plans and free calling benefits with it.
One thing I would like to say that, you can use this facility only if you have a 4G VoLTE supported smartphone. With just LTE, you can not get it.
