What's 4G Super-Voice, we hear you cry? Well, only the most amazing thing to happen to your phone signal, like, ever. Three is the first UK network operator to use 4G for voice calls, meaning you can have signal in your building, cottage AND bat cave. Did we mention 4G Super-Voice also means way-quicker network speeds and better performance and reliability?
Tired of flapping your arms around trying to find windows and high ground to get a single bar of signal?
We were and decided to do something about it.
So, in 2016 we became the first UK operator to use 4G for voice calls and introduced our low frequency 800MHz spectrum. This low frequency lets you make calls, send texts and get online in more places than ever before.
This new spectrum was built to increase the performance, reliability, and capacity of our 4G network. And as an added bonus, it also improved network speeds by 50%.
Want to know more? We’ve summarised the best things about 4G Super-Voice below.
1. Better coverage at gigs and in supermarkets
The whole point of 4G Super-Voice is to try and get rid of indoor black spots. Not being able to send a snap of the band to your mates when you’re at a gig is frustrating. And missing your mum’s call about adding something to the shopping list is just plain annoying. But with 4G Super-Voice, those problems are a thing of the past.
2. Go on the road trip of dreams
We’ve all been there. You’re on a train or in the car and, as you see the cityscape change to beautiful countryside vistas, coverage disappears. The carefully curated road trip playlist that you’ve been streaming is rendered useless. And did you even go on a road trip if you didn’t put every pretty country scene on your Insta story?
Luckily, 4G Super-Voice is live across most of the UK so you can stay connected, even in the sticks.
3. No more mixed messages or dropped calls
Break-ups, family fights, work discussions, precise instructions. Just a few examples when it would be completely rubbish for your signal to fall out, break up or cut out completely. It’s just one of the problems we’re fixing with 4G Super-Voice. Not only will it bring more signal to black spots across the country, it’ll be stronger too. And that’s thanks VoLTE technology, which allows calls to be carried across the 4G network.
4. It’s probably already in your area
Did we mention that 4G Super-Voice already covers well over 65% of the population in the UK? Our lovely engineers are running around the country improving this percentage all the time, too.
5. It’s easy to set up
Then, all you need to do is to update the software on your phone to the latest version. You can tell it’s time because you’ll notice that annoying alert that tells you to update your operating system.
Once this is done, you’re ready. 4G Super-Voice will be yours and pesky black spots will be a thing of the past. And, before you ask, yes we’re offering this service completely free of charge. What’s not to love?
