    On Thursday, AT&T announced that on May 23, it would begin rolling out its Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) network for high definition voice calls in select markets in the United States.

    With Voice Over LTE, AT&T customers will be able to remain on their LTE cellular radio while in the middle of a voice call without having to drop down to 4G HSPA+. In turn, this gives users a clearer, crisper voice over the phone, as well as faster data speeds when on the phone and surfing the Web at the same time:

    DALLAS, May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Beginning May 23, AT&Ti is introducing High Definition (HD) Voiceii 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 networkiii – it's the best of both worlds.
    AT&T notes that VoLTE will be enabled on the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini; however, there are plenty of handsets that are capable of the feature, including Apple's iPhone 5 and later, which are likely to also gain the feature as it rolls out.

    For the time being, those in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, will be able to take advantage of the new feature, and others will have to wait on AT&T's "market-by-market" expansion, which is expected to be much like AT&T's 4G LTE roll-out across the United States.
