Airtel has launched VoLTE services in Chennai.

Airtel VoLTE, which works over 4G, will enable customers "across the city to enjoy HD quality voice calls with faster call set up time", Airtel said in a statement.

Customers can call any mobile, landline network using Airtel VoLTE. There will be no additional data charges for VoLTE and calls will be billed as per existing plan or packs benefits, according to the statement.

"What truly sets apart Airtel VoLTE is the seamless connectivity enabled by Airtel’s wide 4G network coverage. Even in the case of non-availability of 4G network, Airtel VoLTE calls will automatically fall back on 3G/2G network to ensure that customers continue to stay connected at all times. Airtel VoLTE will also enable customers to enjoy HD quality voice calls and high speed data sessions in parallel,"Airtel said.

Manoj Murali, HUB CEO, Kerala & Tamil Nadu, Bharti Airtel Ltd. said, “Having built a world-class 4G network in Chennai, we are delighted to extend our service portfolio by rolling out VoLTE calling in the city. We invite our customers to experience the service. We plan to expand our VoLTE footprint across Tamil Nadu over the next few months.”
