RIL-owned Infotel Broadband Services has informed the Telecom Ministry that it is ready for trial runs of a technology that will enable voice calls service on its wireless broadband network.

Against expectations, Infotel Broadband Services did not apply for making bids for the spectrum auction, freed after cancellation of 122 telecom licences on the order of the Supreme Court.

The company has developed a technology in preparation of a unified licensing regime recommended by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India under which consumers will be able to get voice, messaging and video using a single device, according to official sources.

The company has already approached the Department of Telecommunications for allocation of number series to test its newly developed ‘Voice over LTE technology,’ official sources told PTI.
