22 Dec 2014

Plus introduced the HD Voice technology for its customers, which will enhance the quality of connections and improve the comfort of calls. In the first stage the HD Voice service was introduced in Warsaw and part of the Mazovian voivodship as well as the Lublin and Podlaskie voivodships in Eastern Poland. In the first quarter of 2015 the service will be available on the territory of the entire country.

‘The HD Voice service is the next benefit introduced to enhance the comfort of our customers’, says Beata Białkowska, Managing Director of Marketing in Plus and Cyfrowy Polsat. – ‘It is also one of the stages in the preparation to expand Plus’s offer by introducing voice services based on LTE technology – VoLTE. We have already conducted successful tests of this innovative solution’.

VoLTE (Voice over LTE) allows to connect voice calls over the LTE network, which makes it the next leap in quality after HD Voice.

Plus, as the first operator in Poland, together with Cyfrowy Polsat introduced commercial Internet access services in the LTE technology offering transfer speed of 150 Mb/s. What is more, also as the first operator in Poland, Plus demonstrated the possibilities of LTE-Advanced in the 800 MHz band and successfully conducted tests of transferring data with the speed of 300 Mb/s using the LTE-Advanced technology thanks to combining frequencies in the 800 MHz and 2600 MHz bands. It also presented the first in Poland and the first in Europe, on such a large scale, demonstration of video broadcast via wireless network in LTE Broadcast technology (eMBMS).
