Shaw’s Freedom Mobile continues to expand their VoLTE rollout, with today marking the addition of Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ models.
Voice over LTE (VoLTE) offers simultaneous voice and data transmission, which means voice calls now route over faster LTE for quicker connections and call quality.
Freedom Mobile has also teased “The LG V30, Q6, Q Stylo+ and X Power 3 will be launching tomorrow,” similarly gaining VoLTE support.

Apple iPhone users on Freedom Mobile are still waiting for VoLTE support, and we suspect the launch may be timed with the public release of iOS 12, which is expected in the next couple weeks, after Apple’s special iPhone event set for September 12th.
Last month, Freedom Mobile launched VoLTE for LG G6 and G7 Android phones, while later adding the Galaxy S8/8+, Galaxy A8 and today the Galaxy S9 and 9+.
