    Manoj Murali, HUB CEO, Kerala & Tamil Nadu, Bharti Airtel Ltd. said, "Having built a world-class 4G network in Chennai, we are delighted to extend our service portfolio by rolling out VoLTE calling in the city. We invite our customers to experience the service. We plan to expand our VoLTE footprint across Tamil Nadu over the next few months."

    The VoLTE services are currently present in Mumbai, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra & Goa, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh & Telangana and Karnataka.
