What makes Freedom Mobile’s LTE network traffic-free?
Because Freedom Mobile is the first Canadian mobile provider to make use of newly deployed AWS-3 spectrum, using our LTE network is like driving on a highway no one else is on. Buckle up!

Phone calls and text messages are still handled by the 3G network. This will change in the near future when Freedom Mobile introduces Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) to further increase network performance and capabilities.
Over the next year, Freedom Mobile also plans to launch Voice Over WiFi (VoWiFi) services, which enable calls and texts to be made using WiFi where cellular service is not available.
