AT&T begins rolling out voice-over-LTE calling service AT&T has announced the official launch of their voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) calling service, which will begin rolling out to certain markets next week.
The rollout begins on May 23rd, and will start in notable metros like Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Reads the carrier's post: "Beginning May 23, AT&T is introducing High Definition (HD) Voice on an all-IP, Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) network in select markets. At AT&T, you won't have to choose between faster data speeds and crystal clear conversations. HD Voice customers can simultaneously talk while surfing the Web at 4G LTE speeds, all on the nation's most reliable 4G LTE network it's the best of both worlds."

There are a number of devices that can use the service, and its improved call quality, including the latest Galaxy devices. iOS 8 is said to be including support for VoLTE, which would make the iPhone 5, 5S, 5C and upcoming 6 capable of using it.
