Reliance Jio has launched VoLTE (Voice Over Long Term Evolution) based inbound international roaming between India and Japan. Japan’s KDDI, will utilise Jio’s VoLTE based international roaming services in India. Subscribers of KDDI (who use the ‘AU’ network in Japan) will have complete access to Jio’s 4G network for VoLTE calls when they travel to India.

Jio claims that it is the first telco to launch this service in India. Inbound international roaming refers to subscribers of foreign networks who are currently roaming in the home network. For Q2FY19, Jio users spent an average of 761 minutes on VoLTE calls per month.

In India, users of Airtel, Jio, Vodafone and Idea can use VoLTE.
