A VoIP call is one in which we use the data channel instead of the voice channel. If we use the WiFi connection, we talk of VoWiFi, while if we make the connection through 4G, it is a VoLTE call.
In any case, both methods can be of great help in the event of a 3G blackout. And that is what Vodafone has taken into account because, after many complaints from Lowi and Finetwork usershas finally enabled the possibility of making VoLTE calls for both OMVs.
The solution to the 3G blackout is here
Vodafone began shutting down its 3G network at the end of 2022 and planned to complete it later this year. The process has caused problems in calls for some users, but a remedy is finally being put in place.
What are those problems? Very simple: when you turn off the 3G network, if VoLTE does not exist, calls begin to work over the 2G network, with the consequent network saturation which generates cuts and interference in calls. Vodafone has supported VoLTE calls for years, but the same is not true for the MVNOs that use its network.
Lowi and Finetwork users began to suffer calling problems as Vodafone turned off its 3G network, so last August, the telecom announced that in September it would enable VoLTE calls on his second brand.
And he has kept his word: Lowi customers have already started enjoying the VoLTE service, as long as they have a terminal approved for this. But are not the only ones.
Finetwork, which is already finalizing the renewal of its agreement with Vodafone, is also informing its users of the arrival of this service since last September 20. In this case, activation will also be progressive and you will only be able to make VoLTE calls if you have an approved mobile phone.
