DO I HAVE CALL WAITING AND WHAT IS IT?

YES. Call waiting is a service where a person can accept a second incoming telephone call by placing an in-progress call on hold and may also switch between calls. We also combine additional features such as conferencing, call forwarding, and caller ID.

WHAT IS VoLTE?

VoLTE calls are voice calls made over the 4G LTE network. They have superior audio quality to regular phone calls made over the standard voice network. VoLTE lets you talk and use 4G LTE data simultaneously, and conduct up to six-way conference calls.

WHAT IS WIFI CALLING?

Can’t get a signal? That’s not an issue. Whether you’re at home, at the shops or even catching the waves at the local water park. If you’re having a signal problem, WiFi Calling lets you make and receive calls and texts using WiFi, even if there isn’t mobile network coverage. And 4G wifi calling will allow you to make calls over 4G, meaning even clearer calls than before.

HOW FAST IS 5G?

5G networks are designed to achieve a peak download speed of 20 Gbps and peak upload speed of 10 Gbps. The average rates are more like 100 Mbps for downloads and 50 Mbps for uploads. 
For comparison, the maximum theoretical data speeds for 4G LTE are 150 Mbps for downloads and 50 Mbps for uploads, with an average download speed of 20 Mbps and an average upload speed of 10 Mbps.
In other words, 5G’s average data speed is five times faster than 4G, and in theory, it could reach speeds more than 100 times faster.
