MTN Nigeria has launched a ‘Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE)’ call service, the first of its kind in Nigeria.

This is coming days after the telecoms giant announced it will be rolling out its mobile payment services through its Momo Payment Service Bank Limited (Momo PSB) following final approval by Nigeria’s regulatory authorities. 

The VoLTE service provides customers who own compatible devices with superior natural-sounding voice quality, and reduced background noise with faster call connectivity.

The MTN VoLTE call service which is charged at regular call rates is available to all customers with VoLTE-enabled devices such as Tecno Phantom X, Infinix Zero X and Infinix Zero X Pro smartphones as well as other device models from Samsung, Nokia, and Apple amongst others.

Nigeria’s leading telecom provider with more than 70 million subscribers said the new offering affirms its commitment to “providing access to the best communications technology and improving overall customer experience.”


According to Chief Marketing Officer of MTN Nigeria, Adia Sowho,“with VoLTE, MTN Nigeria continues to enhance Nigerian lives with innovative technology.  VoLTE is free to access today at your rates, from VoLTE-enabled smartphone so you can call and surf at the same time with no interruptions ever again. We move!”

To enjoy the service, customers only need to do three things: check that they have a 4G USIM; check that they are within a 4G coverage area by texting 4G to 131, and update their VOLTE smartphone to the latest software version and restart the phone.
