LTE: How Reliance Jio would provide free voice call and SMS ?

+2 votes

As far as I know, Reliance Jio is new in telecom domain and don't think so they would be having 2G or 3G CS network to provide voice call for the user. Now question comes up how they will provide voice call ? If they will use VoLTE then it will be VoIP based and VoIp comes under the data service which would be charged based on usages.

First lets understand its not completely free. You are going to buy a data plan which would be going to be very cheap and the same dataplan you are going to share between the data and voice. When you use Airtel or Vodafone or any other incumbent, you will see network falling back to 3G or 2G when making a voice call whereas use 4G for data, but in case of Reliance Jio, the data and voice call remain on the same network. In other words, you are making data-based calls, for which Reliance Jio is charging you a sum, even though its significantly low.
Now lets to to more detail, a telecom company will attract a 14p call termination charges when when there is a voice component that has to be handed over to an incumbent operator. So whenever a VoLTE call is made to a non Jio phone or a network which is not supporting the VoLTE, Jio is going to loose 14p. But in long run you will see the move will force the incumbent to move the voice from 2G/3G to VoLTE.

How Reliance jio provide voice service to its subscriber ?

Whenever a new technology comes it provides better user experience. Since the role out of a new technology requires a lot of money investment. It makes services expensive for users. For what reasons an operator would like to deploy VoLTE when it is already have Circuit switch fall back for voice services. In India, Reliance Jio is a new player in telecom market that's why it is rolled out VoLTE since it was not having any legacy technology to provide voice services. What about others ? Are they deploying VoLTE just for the namesake that they also support VoLTE or really there is a need for that ?
