Rogers Communications Inc. said Tuesday it has launched voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) service for customers who own LG Corp.'s G3 Vigor smartphone. Roger said in a press release that the Vigor is “Canada's first VoLTE-enabled device” and added that “more VoLTE-ready devices are expected this year.” It said its customers are “the first in Canada to complete HD voice and video calls over a VoLTE network, where available, versus the traditional voice network.” The Wire Report reported last year that while the technical ability to roll out VolTE service has been available for several years, carriers didn’t necessarily have the will to do so. Rogers spokesman Andrew Garas said in an email that all VolTE voice calls will be “billed like regular, non-VolTE calls.” “Video calls are billed differently — customers are charged per minute. For a limited time, all local video calls are included in a customer’s plan regardless of what price plan they have. If they’re ... a Share Everything customer, unlimited video calls are Canada-wide during the promotional period,” Garas said.
