Mobile phone users on 4G plans will soon enjoy clearer phone calls and faster call connection times - though the number of supporting handsets could be limited, initially.

On Monday, SingTel announced it will roll out its 4G ClearVoice service from May 31, allowing users to make calls over SingTel's 4G network.

At the same time, StarHub announced it would launch its 4G call service "in the coming weeks", while M1 is planning a launch in the second half of the year.

SingTel said the service will be free for its existing 4G customers and assured them that 4G calls will use a mobile plan's existing talk time and not eat into data bundles.
