Airtel Vowifi launch: In the ever-changing world of technology, we are seeing new and better technologies every other day. One such change is coming from Airtel which is ready to roll out the ‘VoWiFi’ service very soon. Just like every new technology, it also seems to be strange and difficult to understand. But its not as strange as it seems to be.
Currently, the leader in calling technology is the VoLTE technology that displaced the years old 2G calling. VoLTE is the current technology that we are using since 4G has come. VoLTE stands for voice calls over a 4G LTE network. Although the marketing terminology states this as VoLTE – it is actually Voice Over LTE.
Moving a step forward in calling technology, Airtel VoWiFi launch has come up with technology which is expected to start from this December. The move is brought primarily to tackle the issue of high call drops. Airtel VoWiFi will be able to improve indoor voice calling for its users and have done testing in different circles.
With this move, Airtel VoWiFi will also be able to cut revenue of companies that are providing this feature from over-the-top (OTT) companies like WhatsApp, Hike, WeChat, and Skype. Currently, these companies are cutting telecom’s revenue and by this move, they can restrict this loss.
Making voice calls over WiFi is free using apps like WhatsApp, Hike, and WeChat. Airtel VoWiFI service will cost no additional charges for its customers. The service also does not need a separate app or any log-in or new number and customers will be able to use it on any Wi-Fi connection inside their homes.
The Airtel VoWiFi service will bridge the poor calling issues in no network areas. Calls over WiFi will push the calling ease to such areas. Nowadays it is anyway very difficult for cellular companies to get permission to put up network towers in and around residential areas.
