What is 4G Super-Voice and how it will improve your life?
Last updated: 17 March 2016
So, 4G Super-Voice. It’s something new and exciting you’ve never heard of but, believe us, soon you’ll be wondering how you ever lived without it.
What is this new, exciting feature you keep banging on about?
We know it sucks when you can't make a call or send a text at home or in the office. So here at Three we're making it right. We listened to you and got ourselves a brand new signal solution which travels across the 4G network.
It’s quite techy, but the long and short of it is that it runs at a lower frequency, allowing the signal to travel deeper into buildings, so that your old blackspots become awash with 4G coverage. This means you can call, message and browse the internet in places you never could before. Genius, huh? Some call it VoLTE, but we call it 4G Super-Voice, because indoor blackspots don’t stand a chance.
How do I get 4G Super-Voice?
We’re currently rolling 4G Super-Voice out across the UK. The good news is that we’re already over half way - at 65% - with most major cities covered, including Birmingham, Manchester, Cardiff and London.
We’ll be sending out notifications to all our customers if 4G Super-Voice becomes available in your area – actually you might already have one. Better check now. Don’t worry; we’re not offended that you don’t remember every text we send you. *sniff*
It’s in my area - how do I enable 4G Super-Voice?
First things first, you’ll need a 4G Super-Voice (VoLTE) compatible phone. Luckily, loads of the most popular devices are already compatible, including the iPhone 6, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the LG G4, plus we’re adding more all the time, so yours could be next.
If your phone is all good to go, just make sure you update your phone’s software. This will kick-start 4G Super-Voice’s powers to harness better network coverage, so it’s pretty important.
A big warning though, make sure you back up all your mobile’s precious pictures beforehand, as these updates can sometimes be beefy on the old storage and you might have to delete some of the 100,000 apps you currently have. Hopefully not though.
Then, hey presto, it’s all done.
So, how does 4G Super-Voice really improve my life?
It’s always good to be sceptical, so here’s a brief list of just some of the ways this will make things a bit easier for you:
Convinced? We thought so.
Indoor blackspots are soon to be a thing of the past.
