If you get bad mobile reception at home or while at work, the Huawei Mate 10/Mate 10 Pro will soon let you make crystal clear voice calls if you’re connected to WiFi. The Chinese smartphone maker has announced that they are enabling VoWiFi on its latest flagship in Malaysia.
Launched a year ago in June 2016, Yes is one of the youngest 4G LTE telco in Malaysia. Despite being the newest LTE player in the market, Yes has leapfrogged the rest by launching the country’s first ever Voice over LTE (VoLTE) service. If you want to enjoy loud and clear conversations, here are 5 reasons why you should go with Yes.
After introducing WiFi Calling, U Mobile has finally rolled out VoLTE which delivers higher definition voice call. This is available to all subscribers on both U Mobile postpaid and prepaid.
Digi has finally jumped on the VoLTE (Voice over LTE) bandwagon which promises higher voice quality and quicker connectivity. It is now available in areas that are covered by Digi’s 4G LTE network.
Yes is Malaysia’s fifth telco to launch 4G LTE and they are about to reveal their full plans at the end of the month. Ahead of its official roll out, owners of the new Samsung Galaxy J (2016) series (J1, J5 and J7) are able to try out their network with the bundled prepaid SIM.
I have been using the SIM for a week and here are my findings so far.
Yes 4G is the first telco in Malaysia to roll out VoLTE (Voice over LTE). While 4G has enabled better internet with blazing fast speeds, voice calls are often neglected. Of course, most postpaid plans now come with unlimited domestic phone calls and SMS but not much has changed when it comes to call quality.
VoLTE is the next evolution of voice by delivering high-quality audio across a data network instead of a circuit-switched voice network. Does it make a difference? We’ve tried it out and the difference is crystal clear.

On the telco front, mobile internet speeds have been the focal point in each mobile evolution with speeds reaching 300Mbps and beyond. Sadly there hasn’t been much improvement for traditional phone calls but all are expected to change with the upcoming VoLTE or better known as Voice over LTE. At the moment, voice calls are handled by 2G/3G networks while 4G is used primarily for data only.
With VoLTE, your traditional voice and video calls are handled like data across its faster 4G network. Considering we can stream high quality music over 4G, you can expect better audio quality when voice calls are delivered through LTE. Another obvious advantage is the speed of connecting a call which shown to be 2-3X faster on VoLTE than the typical mobile voice call service. Obviously this would work perfectly if the said 4G LTE coverage is wide enough and has consistent performance.
To demonstrate the benefits of VoLTE, NTT DoComo of Japan has released a couple of videos which shows improvement on audio quality, instant call connectivity as well as internet speeds while the call is in progress. Watch all of them after the break.
