    Today I was downloading a few games and was kinda surprised how fast they finished downloading but didn't give it much attention.

    Then as I was downloading the Division where my download speed is usually capped at 32 MB/S since my ISP speed is 250 MBPS down / 50 MBPS up, I noticed it was downloading @ 64 MB/S!

    I'm like whaaat? This must be a mistake.

    I finished downloading the game then quickly went to speedtest.net and was shocked to see that they doubled the download speed and upload speed.

    Beginning of this year, they gave us a free speed bump from 100 MBPS Down / 20 MBPS Up to 250 MBPS Down / 50 MBPS Up.

    Now they upped it from 250 MBPS Down/50 MBPS Up to 500 MBPS Down/100 MBPS Up!!

    Super happy about this!

    WOW. For us, ISP are heavily throttling Upload speeds. Did LTE get the same treatment from Etisalat?

    Yes before it was 4G+ now it says VoLTE near the connection bar

    I think VoLTE was already there with 4G but audio clarity wise the difference should be minimal 4G+ or VoLT. You will see really low latency and monstrous Downlink/uplink speeds.

    before if I was on a call, the cellular data wouldn't work. Now I can be on a call and have cellular data at the same time. That's the biggest advantage of VoLTE.

    Ohhh... I thought it was a problematic chipset. Only select telcos in my area offer VoLTE on Intel and Exynos chipset.
