Fido just launched VoLTE! What is that you ask? With VoLTE (Voice over LTE) you can make High Definition voice and video calls just as easily as a regular call over the Fido LTE network. No app, no new user ID – it’s all built in! Your voice and video calls will now connect in the blink of an eye between two compatible phones! To top it all off, VoLTE Video Calls within Canada are free with Fido Pulse™ plans. If you do not have a Fido Pulse plan, video calls made to numbers outside of your local calling area will be rated at $0.35 a minute.
So, what’s so cool about this? Calls are crisp, clear and natural-sounding. Whether it’s a voice call or a video call, only the minutes from your plan will be used; not your data! Finally, you’ll now be able to browse the web and watch videos at lightning fast LTE data speeds while you talk!
You don’t need to add anything to your account or plan – it’s all done with a quick software update on compatible phones! The LG G Stylo is the first one to be VoLTE ready with more phones coming later
This is how easy it is to place a video call or to convert a voice call to a video call:
