Make Free Calls Through Wi-Fi
Mobile phone customers will not have to pay extra if they do voice calls from public Wi-Fi networks. Telecom companies are preparing to launch the Internet calling option, which is expected to help reduce the problem of call drop in areas with poor mobile connectivity. Vodafone India, the country’s second largest telecom company Already, such products are offered in countries like Britain and Australia. Vodafone India is running a merger process with Idea, the country’s third largest mobile phone company. Vodafone is also preparing to bring these products to India. With the help of the customer’s products, the company will be able to make Internet calls using the nearest public WiFi Networks. These calls can also be made from areas where there will be no mobile signal.
It is learned that Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio Infocom has successfully trialed Internet calling product and wants to launch this service across the country. At the same time, Bharti Airtel, the country’s largest mobile phone company, can also bring such products soon. The company is trying to overcome technical difficulties related to it. However, Airtel has not set the deadline for the launch of this service. It is being said that this type of WiFi calling service will be working immediately on 4G VoLTE devices.
Last week, the telecom department had allowed mobile carriers to alot single mobile numbers for cellular and Internet telephony services while making changes in license rules. It cleared the way to provide voice call services to telecom companies through WiFi services. This will help customers stay connected in areas where mobile coverage is bad. With this, the spectrum of telecom companies will also be empty to fulfill the demand for increasing data demand.
A source said, “Vodafone is offering WiFi calling facility in UK and Australia. He can offer this service to the postpaid customers having the first 4G VoLTE phones in the country. He said that the WiFi calling service can get free customers. For this, postpaid customers will be adjusted for the minutes given under their existing plan. Vodafone India has VoLTE coverage in 13 markets. The source said that these services can be launched at these places immediately. Industry watchers say that consumers are already getting a free voice call and there is still a strong price war in the industry. Therefore, mobile companies do not have the scope to charge fees for the WiFi calling service.
