Boom! Mobile has announced that it can now offer VoLTE, aka HD-Voice calling to subscribers of its RED network plans. MVNO's often use the color red to describe the network that is Verizon.
VoLTE allows for improved sound quality of voice calls as the calls get placed over the LTE data network as opposed to the traditional voice network. Additionally, the feature allows for subscribers to be able to surf the web and send text messages while they are on a call as well as to be able to engage in 6-way conference calls. Boom! Mobile is asking its subscribers to visit the following URL https://myaccount.boom.us to be sure VoLTE gets enabled for their account, at no extra charge.
In addition to VoLTE calling, subscribers with Android devices now have access to Visual Voicemail and mobile hotspot. In the past, mobile hotspot, often called tethering, was only supported for Boom! Mobile's iPhone customers. Now, mobile hotspot and Visual Voicemail will be available to all subscribers at no additional charge until 2019. Subscribers must keep their accounts active to maintain the free and new features. Those that wait to signup with Boom! Mobile until September of 2017, will have to pay $1.65/month for Visual Voicemail and hotspot, or $9.99/year if paid for in advance.
Enhanced Visual Voicemail, which includes voicemail to text functionality, will be made available to Android device subscribers on 4/18/2017 at price of $2.99/month, or if paid for a full year in advance $25/year.
Boom! Mobile has now added what it calls Boom! Monitor to its customers dashboard. The feature will allow subscribers to view summaries of their recent talk, text and data usage. It can be found in their dashboard under the "My Usage' tab.
