Wind Mobile starts promoting LTE network launch and support for Wi-Fi calling

With the launch of the LG V20, Wind Mobile says it has its first “future ready” device.

“The LG V20 is the first phone future ready for upcoming WIND services like LTE and Wi-Fi calling,” says Wind on its website. The V20 is band 66 compatible and will work on the carrier’s AWS-3 LTE network when it launches sometime in the next few months.

Wind Mobile, which is now owned by Shaw, has not confirmed when its LTE service will launch.

However, as we previously reported in June, an internal document obtained by MobileSyrup reveals the carrier is “scheduled to start rolling out LTE at the end of 2016.” In addition, Wind plans to launch Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) service.

The LG V20 is the first of many LTE-enabled devices Wind plans to offer.
