Voice Quality over VOLTE (Voice Over LTE)
Voice quality is superior if you have good signal strength receiving on phone. In some cirlces Jio network is available on band 5 (850MHz) which will provide better indoor coverage for voice calling. Where Jio Don’t have band 5 spectrum, you may face indoor coverage problems with call drop. But soon Jio will launch services on sub-GHz band (below 1000 MHz frequency).
So if you really want to enjoy blazing fast speeds go for it. But remember speeds will go slower as user base grows, i think average download speed will go down in near future.[ssba]
